Subject: [PMR 73460,650,706] analysis of performance of tableau service

Hi Madusudan & Shitiz,

I've created the new PMR 73460,650,706 for tracking the Q&A for "analysis of performance of tableau service".

Please find my summary as below:

As we discussed with Tableau support, PosgreSQL is public and the licence of ST is valid for accessing.

So we have to go next:
1. log RFE;
2. ST develop itself;

Could you let me know your comments and option? Thank you.

    Without this functionality how do we design or use any admin views for Tableau performance analysis. We need to develop some KPIs for the Tableau Performance Analysis to be computed on monthly basis.

    Please get this enabled.

    I'm afraid it is not possible to enable postgres support in the OEM version of Tableau Desktop.
