Coming Soon: User Management

Username Mapping

If your analytic infrastructure was built by several independent groups within your organization, it's possible that the username formats don't match across the platforms. Authenticating to each platform can usually be solved with a single sign-on solution, but the issue still exists for embedding these platforms. API's that are used to verify user information, permission to analytic content, group membership, etc. rely on local platform users and can't leverage SSO credentials. Curator solves this with a built-in platform username formatting.

How it Works

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):

  1. User logs into Curator via Okta using their Okta credentials.
  2. Okta returns the username as curator@interworks.com.
  3. Curator automatically re-formats the username to interworks\curator in order to sync the Tableau Server user details.

How to Configure

  1. Navigate to the Curator Backend > Settings > Users > Username Formatting
  2. Specify the username format your authentication source is returning back to Curator using the "Curator Frontend Username Format" field.
  3. Specify the username format for each Connection you've configured in Curator. You can use a different format per Connection.

Supported Formats

The following are the supported username formats assuming the username is "curator" and the domain is "interworks":

  • Username Only > curator
  • Username with Prefixed Domain > interworks\curator
  • User Email > curator@interworks.com
