Issue

Discrepancy on permissions assigned to a folder in postgres metadata versus GUI.

If you have a site in a Tableau Shared Infrastructure where guest is not enabled for the site, however postgres metadata may show that guest is enabled and has read and view capability with denied permissions in the database. And the same is not seen in the GUI.

Environment

  • Tableau Server 
  • Core based licensing

Resolution

This is by design. If a site had guest access enabled and later removed the guest access still shows up in the meta data query.

Cause

By design.
