    Tableau Impersonation with SQL Server

    Rajivkumar Balasubramanian



        Request the forum to help me to solve my issue . Here is the scenario

      - Business users  will run "Tableau" Reports that pull from our "Data-mart ( Of SQL Server 2016) "

      - Tableau is configured  "Impersonation " with "Windows Service account"

      • This Service account has granted permission  in "Database" level 



      - Can the Tableau "User Name()" function return the True Windows User who is running the report


      - our requirement is to get the user name (who is logged in / running report )  instead of getting the "ServiceAccount" 


      - we  have some requirement to show data based on windows user ( Not on Service Account)
