How to request UNH Tableau server access.

UNH maintains a secure server environment where departments can publish and share data visualizations with stakeholders at the university. Tableau server accounts are available to those who develop data visualizations and those who interact with data visualizations that developers create. UNH faculty and staff who do not already have a Tableau server account can use the accounts request process to get access.

Answer

Interactor (viewer) access to content on Tableau server
Before requesting a Tableau account, please first contact the department/ developer who published the content you are interested in. Once you have discussed your needs with the department follow the steps below. (Faculty and staff who already have a Tableau server account may request access through a developer who will direct EIM staff to grant access to specific content.)

  1. log into the UNH Accounts page at http://www.unh.edu/it/accounts
  2. Select "Accounts Management System" from the menu on the left.
  3. Log in with your UNH Active Directory (AD) username and password
  4. Click the large green button to Add access
  5.  Click "Request Access for Yourself"
  6. Verify your personal information. Click Next.
  7. Check the box for "Communication and Collaboration", then check the Tableau box. Click Next.
  8. Select interactor as the Tableau account type from the dropdown (Interactors browse to already-existing visualizations to use them). Enter a short description under business need outlining the content that you need access to. Click Next. 
  9. Finally, review the information and click Submit.
