Is a second license required for setting up a Tableau Server test environment?


Tableau Server



The Tableau Server license allows up to three (3) activations of the same key: one production environment and two non-production environments, as defined in the End User License Agreement. The same product key can be used to activate the software in each environment.

The number of cores used in your test server environments does not affect the number of cores allowed in your production environment. In each environment you can use up to the number of cores allowed by your Tableau Server license.

In the case of a user based license, the total number of authorized users across both production and test environments may not exceed the total number of users allowed by your Tableau Server license.  The user capacity specifies the maximum count of uniquely identified individuals who can use the Tableau Server for any purpose across all environments.
