    Embedding Tableau Server Dashboards into a Website with Prompting for Credentials

    Piyush Gaur

      Hi All,

       

      I have a dashboard published on Tableau Server which I need to embed into my web application.

       

      Now scenarios is like, application has it's own login credentials which validates on application server, how Tableau Server can validate which user has been logged in & which dashboard user is permissible to access.

       

      Can I embed dashboard in such a way that before going to report page a user has to provide credentials which would be validated against tableau server groups.

       

      P.S.- Credentials at application server & credentials at tableau server are different for the same user, how handshaking between these 2 servers can be achieved ?

       

      Example:

       

      Country 1: Will create a group for country 1 users at tableau server level

      Country 2: Will create a group for country 2 users at tableau server level
      Country 3: Will create a group for country 3 users at tableau server level

      Country 4: Will create a group for country 4 users at tableau server level

      Head Quarter Country : Will create a group for Head Quarter Country users at tableau server level

       

      Now my doubt is tableau server will identify which user is logged in & load respective dashboard but when these dashboards are on a web application, which is using different credential format, how application would identify which user is logged in ? Should I implement in such a way that application would ask for tableau server credentials once going to report page ?

       

       

      If any alternative approach please let me know.
