BI Connector's SSO integration module enables users to login to OBIEE from Tableau using their SSO username/password.   The note below shows you how it works.  


SSO Modules Supported by BI Connector

BI Connector supports three modes of SSO authentication:


1.  Default  - Use this if you have any type of SSO (e.g., AD) other than OAM.  

2.  Oracle Access Manager (OAM) - Use this if you have OAM as OBIEE SSO module. 

3.  Custom SSO Integration:  Our Professional Services team will develop a custom SSO integration to your SSO module if Default or OAM approach doesn't work.  This would involve a nominal fee for development, testing, and deployment.  


Note on Automatic Single Sign-on

Please note that Tableau currently does not support automatic login to ODBC data sources even if you have already logged into Tableau Server using SSO.   This is a limitation of Tableau Server and Desktop.  As a result, when users connect to an OBIEE data source, Tableau would prompt users to login again using their SSO username/password (typically once per session per datasource).  


Step-by-Step Guide


If you are using Single Sign-on (SSO) in your organization, please select the "Single Sign-on" checkbox.  


If Single Sign On is enabled “Default” in combo box will be selected by default. Enter the OBIEE server credentials and click OK. BI Connector would then automatically use the correct mechanism to connect to your OBIEE environment.  



If you are using "OAM (Oracle Access Manager)" server as your SSO Provider in your organization, then select it from the combo box as shown in the below screenshot. BI Connector would then connect to your OBIEE environment via OAM server.
