Tableau Permissions: Automated

Here’s the slide deck from the Tableau Admin group meeting. Please let me know if there are questions. A few things to note:

1.) There is a complete ‘User’ module that does the following:

  • add/remove user via local auth
  • add/remove user via AD
  • add/remove groups

2.) These are meant to be used together. For example, you’d first add a group, then run the Set-TsPermission function. Oh, and, it also removes the ‘All Users’ group permissions.

And, again, part of permissions is the monitoring aspect: if you’re not aware of what’s happening, it’s very hard to adjust and enable permissions in a way that is effective.
