Active Directory for Publish To Tableau Server Tool

At our organization we are required to change our passwords every few months forcing a change to my Tableau Server password.  How does this relate to Alteryx?  Well, every 90 days I have to change my password in the "Publish to Tableau Server Tool" for all of my workflows.  This is quite a cumbersome process that could be eliminated with AD.


If you dislike manually changing your for each workflow that uses this tool then "star" this post!

Any update on this. We are having the same issue when we change passwords.

Hi all,


An easy alternative to implement here would be use to token authentification. https://help.tableau.com/v2019.4/server/en-us/security_personal_access_tokens.htm 


In that case, it is a super easy change to make in the macro at authentification level. Essentially, only the body of the initial request would have to be changed compare to username and password : https://help.tableau.com/current/api/rest_api/en-us/REST/rest_api_concepts_auth.htm#make-a-sign-in-r...


Can you please implement that changes to strengthen this tool ? 


I've put my idea also here : https://community.alteryx.com/t5/Alteryx-Designer-Ideas/Publish-to-Tableau-Server-without-username-a... 


Thanks a lot,
