Solution Summary

Use Case

When integrated Tableau end users must authenticate with RSA SecurID Access to sign in. Tableau can integrate using SAML SSO Agent or Relying Party. Tableaudoes not support JIT (just in time) user provisioning.


Integration Types

SSO Agent integrations use SAML 2.0 technologies to direct users’ web browsers to RSA SecurID Access for authentication. SSO Agents also provide Single Sign-On to other applications using the RSA Application Portal.

Relying Party integrations use SAML 2.0 to direct users’ web browsers to RSA SecurID Access for authentication.


Supported Features

This section shows all of the supported features by integration type and by RSA SecurID Access component. Use this information to determine which integration type and which RSA SecurID Access component your deployment will use. The next section in this guide contains the instruction steps for how to integrate RSA SecurID Access with Tableau using each integration type.

Configuration Summary

This section contains links to the sections that contain instruction steps that show how to integrate Tableau with RSA SecurID Access using all of the integration types.

This document is not intended to suggest optimum installations or configurations. It is assumed that the reader has both working knowledge of all products involved, and the ability to perform the tasks outlined in this section. Administrators should have access to the product documentation for all products in order to install the required components. All RSA SecurID Access and Tableau components must be installed and working prior to the integration.
