Issue#10: Tableau - Additional Permissions Controlling What User Can See

  • Implementing more granular controls around what a user can see would alleviate potential security concerns and points of confusion for end users that don't know what certain aspects of the UI do.

    Specifically: When viewing a Workbook, you see Views, Data Sources, Refresh Schedule, etc across the top. The ability to deny a user access to see Data Sources and Refresh Schedule would eliminate confusion for most of our end users if they were to get to that screen.


    Tableau currently lacks this level of granularity in its permissions

    Hi, When the User X opens the dashboard, he was unable to view the Web Edit option.  Permissions for this dashboard are: All users - Viewer Access                                                         User X - Editor Access  Note: Guest User does not have access to this dashboard. Embedded link of that dashboard: http://Server_name/views/Dashboard_name/View_name?:embed=y&:display_count=no&refresh We are on Tableau Server 9.2.0 Am I missing something?

  • Issue#20: Tableau - Aggregation issue

        Hello all, I just want to begin by saying how much this forum has saved my job! Thanks everyone! I am having an issue getting my values to aggregate properly. I have attached two pictures below to help explain:BEFOREAFTERThe problem is that when I remove a dimension, the values are not aggregating properly. Each Facility and Cost Center should have 1 App attached to it and taking away Summary Pay type should not aggregate those Apps. Once I take away Cost Center, then they should begin to aggregate. I can use MAX() but then it keeps the same value when I get rid of cost center and I would want that to be Summed. The end goal of this is to track Dollars/App By facility and able to drilldown to cost center, then summary pay type and another layer of fidelity that I may add in. Thanks!

  • Issue#86: Tableau - Additional date time number formats

    I calculate time variances in some of my KPI dashboards that result in negative time values (e.g. if a procedure starts early it will be a negative variance from the planned time). Extending the custom number formats to allow for things like this would be great: "h:mm:ss;(h:mm:ss)". I currently have to color encode the values to be able to tell the difference between positive and negative values. It would also be great if this format worked like it does in Excel: "[h]:mm:ss". The brackets allow the hours to extend beyond a base 24 hour period. Currently 25 hours renders as "1:00:00". With my proposed format it would render as "25:00:00". [A related feature request is to support an actual TIME data type, that idea is at] [Edited 20150810 to add the TIME data type reference - Jonathan Drummey]

  • Issue#3915: Tableau - Colouring & User Specific Views

    Hi All, I was hoping someone could give me a few options to compensate for one of our clients requests. It's a perfectly reasonable request from their point of view but I get the feeling it's quite difficult from a Tableau/my point of view. The Background: This is just an example but describes the issue I've got a workbook that filters by a dimension call it 'Person'The workbook itself is based on their access so Michael have access to 'Person 1', 'Person 2', 'Person 3' whilst John might have access to 'Person 2', 'Person 3', 'Person 4'. This restricts data based on a column that matches up with their Tableau UserName. The issue is that when Michael views it his colours are:Person 1 = BluePerson 2 = GreenPerson 3 = Red When John views it his colours are:Person 2 = BluePerson 3 = GreenPerson 4 = Red These people are from different departments within the same organisation so they will need to communicate about the data, they will often just use the

    The Samsung SMTS-5140 supports on-demand media when connected via fiber.

I guess that Logitech needs to upgrade the profile for the Samsung box so media control buttons are always live. 

  • Issue#57575: Problems delegating non-admin user permissions to Unlock-ADAccount

    All,I am probably missing something very easy here. I am trying to allow our Director of Operations have permissions to unlock AD accounts for his team when they lock their accounts from too many failed attempts. Due to compliance restrictions, we do not allow lockout time to reset, it must be unlocked by someone who has permissions to unlock it. I followed the steps for creating a new security group in the OU with the employee accounts, added my non-admin account to it, and then went through the Delegate Control Wizard on that OU. I added the group, I specified custom, then checked the options for Read/Write lockoutTime, and finished that. I closed out ADUC, rebooted the PDC, then I logged off my workstation with my daily non-admin account and then logged back in. When I start the Powershell ISE with my non-admin account and execute...

  • Issue#131748: Tableau - Aggregation Issue (Part II)

    Hello all, Some time ago I was having an issue with my data due to the level of fidelity it was being joined on. I've since gotten a solution for it which can be seen in my attached work book's calculated field. I have an incremental ask to this issue now. Now, I am able to aggregate properly by pay period but When I try to sum up the year, it is aggregating only the values that are there instead of by the cost center. Example attached. When you remove the Pay Period pill, each value on the stage should be the same as long as it's in the same cost center, regardless of the pay type or job class. QA: The sum of A Cost Center 6000 should be the ball park of 8563. Thank you!

    Hi Apologies for a numpty questions, this is all new to me and i am learning 'on the job'  I am trying to overcome a thorny issue at work whereby we need to redirect connections to a back end service based on the AD group the user is a member of. I have managed to get this working in a test set up with 2 IIS instances in seperate pools and using and LDAP lookup based on the authentication header. However, transition to the 'real' service is not so simple, as it turns out the application makes an anonymous connection to the back end service by default.  Although it appears it is capable of using windows authentication and that is enabled on the backend IIS, I am not allowed to turn off the anonymous authentication - which I think would fix the issue......... Therefore I have been trying to work out how I can bounce the first, anonymous,  connection attempt and force it to use authentication.  I have tried several different approaches based on sea

    I recently bought a Harmony Smart Control to controll our living room TV/AV system which includes a number of components - Samsung HDTV, Apple TV, Sony Bluray, Wii, TW Cable DVR, and a stereo Krell KAV-300i amp.  I can control all of the components with the exception of the Krell amp.  I have tried a number of similar Krell amp codes, hoping one would work, but I cannot get any response from the amp (power on/off, change source, volume) - even when moving the Harmony base unit and IR extender in multiple positions in proximity to the device's IR sensor. Part of the reason I bought the Harmony unit was that it claimed compatibility with this older Krell amp.  I do not have the original remote, so now I am stuck not being able to fully control my system. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

They've been invited as agents in the normal way, but can't get past the login screen despite changing passwords, and all the other usual checks. I feel like this is more of a one-to-one support request than a 'put it to the forums' kind of resquest, but I didn't see any option for that, so please do point me to this if that's the case.

  • Issue#154425: Linux - New debian install - what permissions to give the user

    I've installed a new OS and have come across the 'file permissions' issue. I moved folders from a different partition onto the home directory of the new install using the GUI. A window appeared asking for the root password which I put in. But when I wanted to move a folder from the home directory to the partition, the GUI did not ask for the root password. Instead it gave the message 'The folder cannot be copied because you do not have permissions to create it in the destination'. It seems I'll now need to give permission for the user to do normal stuff on this new install. For this particular example, I believe it would be Code: chmod -R u+rw /home I think I also need to give permissions for use of the mediaplayer etc, although I was able to play vlc player as user without any error messages. So once a new install is done, what permissions are necessary so that the new user can properly use all the functions of the OS? Also, if my new user has no permissions yet, and root passwo

    I've got kind of a tricky issue: I have 5 Tableau files showing answers from a survey.In each file I made a pivot field out of most of the data columns, then made groups from the pivot field names.Each file has about 120 groups Each file's dashboard has about 30-50 bar graphs.Each bar graph shows the responses for one of the survey questions.Some respondents didn't answer all questions, so my spreadsheet has blank cells sprinkled all over it from these null responses.The Excel files are kinda big - 600 column, 700 rows.Here's my problem: For every bar graph, I need to show the % and number of null responses. This could be shown as an additional column for each graph, or a text item somewhere in the graph, maybe below the title.To add a column to each graph I'd have to:Go back into Excel and make a "Not Answered" column for each of my 200+ questionsThen add them to my pivot fields, and drag each one into its corresponding pivot field group.
