Configuration of Tableau Online

The Snow Integration Connector for Tableau Online is used for finding the following information about an organization's Tableau Online account:

  • Number of users

  • Each user's assumed subscription license (based on the user's site role)

    This information provides a general view, since a particular user may have been assigned a site role with more limited permissions than their actual license permits.

  • Login activity

    Please note that login information is based on the last login date; thus, it may not fully represent user activity.

The configuration must be started and prepared according to SaaS connector configuration.
