- Tableau Server
- REST API
AnswerAs with tabcmd, Tableau Server does not utilize SAML when authentication via the REST API. Instead, sign in using the account credentials as specified on Tableau Server.
If Tableau Server is configured for local authentication, sign in with the username and password set for the account on Tableau Server
Option 1Make a Sign In Request with a Personal Access Token
Option 2Sign in with the username and password set if the Tableau Server is configured for local authentication, or with Active Directory credential if it's configured for Active Directory authentication.
Note: In either case, the account must have been explicitly added to Tableau Server (accounts are not automatically added by sign in, and must be added by an administrator prior to any login attempt).
- For more information, see Tableau REST API - Signing In and Signing Out (Authentication).
- To set up Authentication using JS API (not having the user do anything), your only option is Trusted Authentication.
