Disable or Enable Ask Data for a Site

Ask Data is enabled for sites by default, but Tableau administrators may disable it.

  1. Go to the General site settings.

  2. (Tableau Server only) In the Web Authoring section, select Let users edit workbooks in their browser.
  3. In the Availability of Ask Data section, choose from these options:

    • Enabled enables creation of Ask Data lenses for all published data sources.

    • Disabled hides Ask Data throughout the site, while preserving information about previously created lenses so they can be restored if Ask Data is re-enabled.

Note: Beginning with version 2019.4.5, Tableau Server administrators can configure whether or not Ask Data is enabled by default.
