The Tableau Online Single Sign-on (SSO) Integration creates a client application that uses Auth0 for authentication and provides SSO capabilities for Tableau Online. Your users log in to Tableau Online with Auth0 identity providers, which means the identity provider performs the identity credentials verification.
Before you begin:
- Sign up for a Tableau Online account.
- Set up a connection, which is a source of users. Connections can be databases, social identity providers, or enterprise identity providers, and can be shared among different applications. You may set up more than one connection for use with SSO integrations.
Configure Auth0 SSO Integration
Enter a name for your SSO Integration, configure the following settings, and click Save.
|Callback URL||URL to which the user is redirected after login (|
|Audience||Service Provider Entity URL from within Tableau Online (|
|Recipient||Your Tableau Online URL (|

|Use Auth0 instead of the IdP to do Single Sign-on (SSO). **Legacy tenants only.**||If enabled, Auth0 will handle SSO instead of Tableau Online.|
