ResolutionTableau Server supports Active Directory for authentication or a self contained, local authentication.
CauseLDAP is not currently supported for authentication to Tableau Server.
- Tableau Server uses two LDAP ports to connect with Active Directory; this is why it is mentioned so often. LDAP cannot be the only authentication protocol.
- LDAP can be used in Tableau Desktop to connect to Teradata and Oracle data sources that use LDAP for authentication.
