Zuar Portals can be configured to use Tableau Server/Online for authentication.

Users who authenticate to Tableau Server/Online with basic authentication (local, Active Directory, or LDAP identity stores) can log into a Zuar Portal with the same credentials (username and password).

Portal Environment Variable Configuration

Configuring a Zuar Portal to use Tableau Server/Online is done via the Portal's env file:

  • TABLEAU_SERVER_URL - This is the URL of the Tableau Server/Online (e.g. https://tableau.zuar.com or https://us-east-1.online.tableau.com/).
  • TABLEAU_SERVER_SITE - This is the site of the Tableau Server/Online.
  • TABLEAU_SERVER_USERNAME - (Optional) This is the username of a Tableau Server server administrator account. This is used for Tableau REST API impersonation.
  • TABLEAU_SERVER_PASSWORD - (Optional) This is the password of a Tableau Server server administrator account. This is used for Tableau REST API impersonation.
