Do you have any quick tips for Tableau?

Embedding Dashboards in Web Sites

Dashboards may be embedded in web sites

Examples: SharePoint, Departmental Web Site, Portal

Dashboards on websites can be configured to use individual’s access in Tableau Server

To see the dashboard on the page, they must have an account on Tableau Server

Dashboards on websites can be configured to use a service account to authenticate to Tableau Server

This method is required when making dashboards available to the general public or to a large audience (e.g. all campus faculty)

This method may be used when wanting to control access to the dashboard via another authentication method
