Question

How to identify which user added groups.

Environment

Tableau Server

Answer

If the Application Server (wgserver) logs still exist from the time the groups were created, it should be possible to find the user who added the groups.

  1. Create a logs.zip bundle by following the steps mentioned in Creating Tableau Server Log Files.
  2. Unzip the file.
  3. Navigate to the wgserver folder and search the files for the group names. The file names including the events of interest will be named something like "production.8001_2014_11_13....log". Using a text editor such as Sublime or Notepad++ works best as they allow you to search for a string in all files in an entire directory.
