Creating Integrations: Tableau Connection

Trusted Tickets

Curator can take advantage of trusted ticket authentication.

By default, if the Tableau Server workbook views which are embedded in dashboards require a login, the user will be prompted for their username and password the first time they view any dashboard. With trusted ticket authentication enabled on the system and on the associated Tableau Server, the system will authenticate on behalf of the user.

One drawback to using trusted tickets is that there is a little more overhead to authenticate on behalf of the user before showing the dashboard. Since trusted tickets are one-time use, this authentication takes place before each and every dashboard is shown.

This functionality requires that the Tableau Server REST API is enabled. See the Enabling the REST API section for more information.

Enabling Trusted Tickets

  1. Login to the backend of your Curator instance (e.g. http://curatorexample.com/backend).
  2. Navigate to Integrations > Connections from the left-hand menu.
  3. Click on your Tableau Server from the list view.
  4. Expand the Trusted Ticket Authentication Section.
  5. Enable the toggle for Use Trusted Ticket Authentication.
  6. If you have not set up Curator as a trusted host on your Tableau Server, follow the instructions in the dialog box that appears below the enabled button.
  7. Save the Connection.

Note: The dialog box lists out a couple of different trusted hosts to add to Tableau Server. Those include the server address (Outbound IP), local address, server name and hostname
