Is there a way to get the authentication token from Tableau server? The API documentation indicates that the token is needed from the login, but there’s no Tableau connector node to do that. Tableau accepts REST requests, but at present I’m getting a variety of response codes that appear to be related to authentication that I can’t get past.
The following is from Tableau.com:
To get a list of resources like users, you send a GET request. The request must include an
X-Tableau-Auth header with the authentication token that was returned in the Sign In call. There is no request body.
The following examples shows a request that gets a list of users.
GET /api/2.2/sites/9a8b7c6d-5e4f-3a2b-1c0d-9e8f7a6b5c4d/users/users HTTP/1.1 HOST: my-server X-Tableau-Auth: 12ab34cd56ef78ab90cd12ef34ab56cd
