SAML Authentication Fails After Upgrading to Version 9.0

When logging into Tableau Server configured for Local Authentication and SAM, after recently upgrading to version 9.0, authentication fails. 


  • Tableau Server 9.0.0
  • Local Authentication
  • SAML


This behavior has been corrected in a more recent release of Tableau Server.

Additional Information

The behavior will occur if the username being passed from the identity provider (IdP) is in a username@domain format. Other username formats will likely not be affected. In addition, the behavior does not occur when Tableau is configured for Active Directory authentication.
