Virtual Event Recap: Row-Level Security in Tableau Desktop


Virtual Event Recap: Row-Level Security in Tableau Desktop

Another month, another virtual Lunch & Learn in the books! This time, we discussed row-level security in Tableau Desktop.

Row-Level Security in Tableau Desktop

Row-level security allows you to filter out data from your dashboards based on the user profile accessing your data. This may sound a tad boring but is actually anything but! Imagine a world where you can make one dashboard, and it then knows who is accessing it and changes what data they see, how it looks and even how it calculates the same measure (like a profitability score). Well, welcome to that world with row-level security!

In the video replay below, you’ll learn about:

  • Restricting data access by username or group
  • Branding with colours, logos and conditional titles
  • Extending this with conditional logic in calculations

We finish by leveling up with InterWorks’ own Curator, which provides a front-end for your Tableau content and lets you re-skin a central site based on user login. When combined, these create a sleek look and feel for your customised and branded dashboards, plus anything else you want to throw in (like data dictionaries … not the kitchen sink).

Want more? Yeah, you do!
