How to Increase Tableau Dashboard Performance

The Client’s Challenges

GETTING STARTED IN TABLEAU
  • Resolve the Tableau security requirement efficiently
  • Improve the dashboard response time to less than 5 seconds

The Approach and Solution

  • Use a security view to establish user access at the customer and location levels, and also create an extract of the data.
  • Separate the internal dashboards and customer-facing dashboards.
  • Use two separate tables in the process. One to identify the user as ‘internal’ or ‘customer’, and the other to identify the locations for customer users.
  • Using the join condition functionality added in Tableau 10.2, conditionally join the security view based on user access.
  • Toggle between data sources using a parameter that dynamically populates based off of a user’s global access indicator.
