Question

Is it possible to distribute or share static views like PNG or PDF reports that were generated in Tableau Server using REST API with non-licensed users outside of Tableau like sharing in Slack, MS Teams, WhatApps, Line App "Group/Channel" which have many users. 

Environment

  • Tableau Server 2021.4.2

Answer

Customers may share static pictures or PDFs of Tableau vizzes with unlicensed users; there is no licensing requirement for users to receive/view static content.

From a EULA perspective we do not have any say about sharing static view or PNG/PDF file with multiple users.
