- We are making an integration to Tableau Server thru Okta using SAML.
- We have a lot of Okta users that will use a single Tableau user/profile (the “public” user).
To achieve this, we are joining each person (with uses the public user) individually to the Application “Tableau Server” with an username override to “public”. This works, but it’s not ideal, since each person must be added individually and the username has to be set for each of them.
We’ve created a Tableau Public group, and attempted to add the group to the Application, this worked ok, BUT we are not able to override the entire group’s username, the application tells us to edit each person individually, so we still need to do this manually one by one.
We’d like to be able to have a checkbox on the group so that the group settings can override the person settings. Thus, the Public group can be added to the Application, force a username override, and all the users on that group will have their username changed to “public” since the group says so.
I’m not sure how to handle when someone is on the same Application via 2 separate groups (ie. Public group + Admin group), it might cause trouble since both will attempt to modify the username, but I guess that a single warning on the override page might suffice, or a priority number (ie. the lowest/highest priority wins)
