Question

How to create data-driven alerts to specific users, roles, or groups.

Environment

Tableau Server

Answer

Tableau Server does not yet provide the capability of controlling who and who cannot set Data-Driven Alerts, at either user, group or role levels. 

As a partial workaround, you may revoke the "Download Image/PDF" permission. Performing this action will stop a user’s Data-Driven Alerts task; however please note that any subscription(s) will be sent without an image (this is because this specific permission controls both Data-Driven Alerts and Subscriptions). 

For more information about this topic, see Control how often the server checks data-driven alerts in Tableau Help.
