Issue

Unable to export a list of all users from Tableau Online.

Environment

Tableau Online

Resolution

There are currently two ways to export a list of users from Tableau Online:
  • Using the REST API "Query User On Site" method it is possible to get a list of users on your Tableau Online site.
  • Use the Admin Insights Project: The Admin Insights Project allows you to create Custom Admin Views about your Tableau Online and using the built in "TS Users" data source you can create a view containing a list of your users and this can be easily exported as a PDF, Image, CSV, Tableau Workbook.

Cause

Tableau Online accounts do not have the ability to enable access to the Tableau Server database, so the solution in Exporting User List - for Tableau Server - is not available.
