Using the permissions methods of the Tableau REST API you can:

  • List, add, and delete granular default permissions that apply to new content created in a project
  • List, add, and delete granular permissions for existing projects, workbooks, views, flows, metrics, Ask data lenses, and data sources

This functionality relates to the UI elements and concepts described at: Permissions Reference(Link opens in a new window).

Add Default Permissions

Adds default permission rules for workbook, data source, data role, lens, flow, and metric resources in a project for a user or group. If Tableau Catalog is enabled, also adds default permission rules for database or table resources in a project for a user or group. After adding default permission rules, new resources of the type you specify that are added to the project will have those permission rules. If permissions are locked to the project(Link opens in a new window), then the same is true for all existing child content of the project. For more information, see Permissions(Link opens in a new window).

Content owners can override default permissions for their content, but only if project permissions have not been locked. Project permissions can be locked for a new project when you call Create Project or for an existing project by calling Update Project. For more information, see Lock Content Permissions to the Project(Link opens in a new window).

Add Workbook to Schedule

Adds a task to refresh or accelerate a workbook to an existing schedule.

The task type must match the schedule type. For a list of schedule types, see Create a Schedule.

This method is not available for Tableau Online.

Starting in Tableau version 2022.1 (API v3.16), with the introduction of View Acceleration(Link opens in a new window), the data acceleration feature is deprecated. Requests for data acceleration endpoints and attributes will not return an error, but will also not cause any change on the server or return meaningful information about data acceleration of a workbook. We recommend removing any dependencies on data acceleration in your requests to REST API endpoints, as the feature may become unsupported in future releases resulting in error codes being returned.

URI

PUT /api/api-version/sites/site-id/schedules/schedule-id/workbooks

Parameter Values

api-version The version of the API to use, such as 3.16. For more information, see REST API and Resource Versions.
site-id The ID of the site that contains the view.
schedule-id The ID of the schedule that you are associating with the workbook.

    </dataAcceleration>
  </task>
</tsRequest>
        

Attribute Values

workbook-id The ID of the workbook to add to the schedule.

Permissions

Only Tableau Server users who are server administrators or site administrators can add a workbook to a data acceleration schedule. Tableau Server users who are not server administrators or site administrators can only add a workbook to other types of schedules if they own the workbook, or are the project leader for the project that contains the workbook.

Delete Default Permission

Removes default permission rules for workbook, data source, data role, lens, flow, and metric resources in a project for a user or group. If Tableau Catalog is enabled, also removes default permission rules for database or table resources in a project for a user or group. After removing default permission rules, new resources of the type you specify that are added to the project will no longer have those permission rules. If permissions are locked to the project(Link opens in a new window), then the same is true for all existing child content of the project.
