Goal: Tableau Embedded Into Salesforce With Single Sign-On (SSO)

Zuar Portals serve as the glue between Salesforce and Tableau. They enable a secure, single sign-on experience for end users in Salesforce.
If you do not have a Zuar Portal, please let us know and we can instantly spin up a free trial for you.
Access to a Salesforce admin account is necessary.
Zuar Portal embedding works with both Salesforce Lightning Experience and Salesforce Classic, however we will be detailing instructions for Salesforce Lightning.
Tableau Server / Tableau Online
- Tableau Server / Tableau Online account. If you do not have a Tableau Server / Tableau Online account, let us know. We're certified tableau resellers, so we can set you up with a trial.
