I've a C# / .NET application and an on-premise tableau server.
Actually we call different URL from our application which redirect to our Tableau website, e.g.:
This works well, but we have to login before we can see our view.
Now I try in my application to automatically login with username and password, so that I can call the URL directly. But here I stuck.
I wrote a XML file and with HttpWebResponse I have a token, e.g. "LJMEm0vZTwKi9ob9Vuc94g|nJxwyEZhNBerZ1HRhnQmAjNeoWqiWYAO".
Can I use this to pass the login?
Or do I need a trusted ticket? (But here I've read, that I have to whitelist all IPs, but that's not possible, because my .NET application is running on different systems)
Can anyone help me with this?
Yes, you are right you need to use Trusted Authentication in your case
You can whitelist multiple IP addresses: Add Trusted IP Addresses or Host Names to Tableau Server - Tableau
I hope it is helpful,
