Configure Tableau Server to use Auth0 to authenticate users over SAML 2.0 (SSO)
Allow your Tableau Server users a quick method to login securely to your data and dashboards. Harness the power of your data. Unleash the potential of your people. Choose the analytics platform that disrupted the world of business intelligence. Choose Tableau.
User authentication through SAML does not apply to permissions and authorization for Tableau Server content, such as data sources and workbooks. It also does not control access to underlying data that workbooks and data sources connect to, you retain complete access permissions through your admin accounts as to what each employee has access to.
Data to the people—responsibly
Extend the value of your data across your entire organization with Tableau Server. Empower your business with the freedom to explore data in a trusted environment—without limiting them to predefined questions, wizards, or chart types.
All your data
Connect to any data source securely - whether on-premises or in the cloud. Publish and share your data sources as live connections or encrypted extracts for everyone to use. Work with popular enterprise data sources like Cloudera Hadoop, Oracle, AWS Redshift, cubes, Teradata, and more.
Security your way
Tableau seamlessly integrates with your existing Auth0 SSO security protocols. Manage authentication at the user and group level. Maintain the security of your database with pass-through data connection permissions and row-level filtering.
The Tableau Server Single Sign-on (SSO) Integration creates a client application that uses Auth0 for authentication and provides SSO capabilities for Tableau Server. Your users log in to Tableau Server with Auth0 identity providers, which means the identity provider performs the identity credentials verification.
Before you begin:
- Sign up for a Tableau Server 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||Your Tableau Server audience (|
|Recipient||Your Tableau Server URL (|
|Destination||Your Tableau Server 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 Server.|
