Do you have groups of friends or family that call you different names? Have you ever had two of these groups collide, each calling you something different and being confused when you respond to a strange nickname? Maybe your paper company coworkers call you “Andy” and your college buddies call you “’Nard Dog”? Or maybe your analytics infrastructure was built by disconnected groups and the username formats don’t match across the systems? We can’t help you, ‘Nard Dog, but we can bring your analytic platform users together in Curator!
Curator's username formatting feature will take the username received from your authentication source (SAML IdP, Tableau Server local auth, ThoughtSpot local auth, etc.) and map it to another format based on the API call being made. For instance, if Okta is returning the username as an email address but Tableau Server users use the prefixed domain format, the following will happen (assuming the username is “interworks\curator” in Tableau Server):
The following are the supported username formats assuming the username is “curator” and the domain is “interworks”:
Username with Prefixed Domain
