    Tableau Online REST API Impersonation

    David Stone

      I've tried to use the "Sign In" endpoint of the REST API with impersonation (Reference-Tableau Server REST API - Tableau)

       

      This fails with the error:

       

      {

        "error": {

          "summary": "Signin Error",

          "detail": "User 'x@domain.com' is not a system admin and may not impersonate as another user.",

          "code": "401001"

        }

      }

       

      The "system admin" role doesn't seem to be available to Tableau Online users, does that mean that impersonation via the REST API is not possible with Tableau Online?

       

      (This question is related to the one I asked yesterday here)

       

      Kind regards
