Course Overview

Tableau Server Administration is a two-day course that provides new users with in-depth coverage of Tableau Server administration, providing you with hands-on experience administering a Tableau Server installation, including exploring managing content, users, and permissions.  Throughout the course you’ll explore User interactions with Tableau Server, Tableau Server components, and key steps for installation, configuration, administration and monitoring.  You’ll also work with command-line utilities and REST API, learn about upgrading a single-server installation to a new version, and modifying the authentication method.
