Finding and Accessing Tableau Reports
The Repository for Administrative Data and Reports (RADAR) provides a way of searching available Tableau dashboards.
RADAR also shows the security authorization required for each Tableau dashboard in the Access Restrictions column. If you cannot access a dashboard that has security restrictions, select the “Request Access” link.
Note that UWBI access automatically provides access to Tableau security groups with similar sensitivity. The table below describes the mappings.
