EnvironmentTableau Server for Windows
ResolutionTableau Server for Windows supports Active Directory for authentication or a self contained, local authentication.
CauseLDAP is not currently supported for authentication to Tableau Server for Windows
- Tableau Server uses two LDAP ports to connect with Active Directory; this is why it is mentioned so often. LDAP cannot be the only authentication protocol.
- LDAP can be used in Tableau Desktop to connect to Teradata and Oracle data sources that use LDAP for authentication.
- To voice your support for the inclusion of this feature in a future product release, add your vote to the following Community idea: http://community.tableausoftware.com/ideas/2435
- Please note that LDAP Authentication is only available for Linux from Tableau Server 10.5 (and later versions), see Identity Store and identityStore Entity for more information.
