How to implement Login-Based License Management (LBLM) activation on Tableau Server installed on-premise?  


  • Tableau Server on Windows
  • Tableau Server on Linux


Contact your Tableau Account Manager to review requirements. A Tableau Server product key will need to be obtained and activated on Tableau Server.

If you believe you have an LBLM enabled Tableau Server, use the tsm licenses list after key activation to confirm that the LBLM flag is enabled.  It is also possible to view the LBLM enabled flag in the Tableau Customer Portal when viewing Tableau Server keys.
