Tableau License Manager

Enabling Tableau license key control and automation through custom application development

Common Licensing Challenges

In large Tableau deployments, accounting for and maintaining licenses can be challenging:

  • Users may hold on to licenses without using them or fail to surrender them after leaving the company.
  • In extreme cases, users may even intentionally steal accounts or request license keys for unauthorized third parties.
  • Users can register the key with any information they choose, making it impossible to identify missing or unreliable license key holder information.
  • Starschema’s Tableau License Manager, available for both Windows and OS X operating systems, provides strong protection to your enterprise.

Highlights

  • Automated Tableau installation and license key issuance.
  • A consistent audit-ready database of license key holders.
  • Integration of an enterprise-grade authentication element into the license key issuance process.
  • License key theft prevention by utilizing Tableau’s Authorized-To-Run (ATR) system.
  • Starschema’s Tableau License Manager, available for both Windows and OS X operating systems, provides strong protection to your enterprise.

How it Works

Our custom application leverages Single Sign On (SSO) authentication or any enterprise grade authentication layer to authenticate the user then utilizes the user information within their organizational account to produce consistent and reliable database of users who currently holding a Tableau License Key. This single source of truth is periodically synchronized with Tableau’s Salesforce instance to ensure the database is up to date in the event that the Server Admin issues license key manually without using the automated installer. More importantly, it automates the entire installation and activation parts using p-values in the backend therefore requiring no input from the user throughout the entire installation process besides authentication.
