Are Tableau dashboards hosted on Tableau Server downloadable by viewers

0 votes
You may have access to the datasets that were used to create a Tableau Public dashboard if you download it.

Tableau Desktop dashboards, I believe, are the same.

Which leads me to the question: can anyone with access to a Tableau Server download Tableau Desktop documents?

I'd want to publish a Tableau Desktop dashboard to Tableau Server so that I can embed it on a website, but I don't want visitors to be able to download it. Knowing this will most likely influence my decision to purchase Tableau Server.

Yes, anybody with download rights (which you establish in the user or group permissions) will be able to see whatever data is associated with it. If it's connected to a database like SQL, the user will be required to input credentials that allow them to connect to it. If the data is in the form of an excel document, the only way to get it is to download it.

It appears to me that all you need to do is restrict download access to users, which can be done in the user/group settings. Allow them to "view only."

I hope this information is useful.
