Unable to Execute a tabadmin manage_global_credentials in Tableau Services Manager


Published: 27 Nov 2017
Last Modified Date: 11 Jan 2018

Issue

There is no equivalent to tabadmin manage_global_credentials in the first release of Tableau Server on Linux.

Environment

  • Tableau Server on Linux
  • Tableau Services Manager (TSM)

Resolution

Use Kerberos delegation for Impala.

Named-user delegation may be added in a later version of Tableau Server for Linux.

Cause

Tableau Server has used Kerberos delegation for Impala since Tableau Server 10.0, manage_global_credentials is need for Tableau Server 9.3 or earlier, or for non-Kerberos-enabled Tableau Server.
