    Tableau and BOX - How does the authentication work from Data Security Perspective

    Sirish Malisetty

      Dear All,


      My team is connecting EXCELs and other files from BOX using their Single Signon and creating dashboards on Tableau and publishing them on a server for everyone's use.

      It is working perfectly fine. My concern now is how is the authentication works here?


      How is a third person - an analyst - having access to server dashboard able to see the excel's data on the box?

      Is it the developer's single sign-on credentials (on BOX),  embedded in the Workbook while publishing to the server?


      can tableau force that analyst to input their own BOX credentials to see the dashboard?

      As a Data Security officer, I am trying to understand what best works for my scenario and any inputs/suggestions are welcome.
