We’ve rebuilt the Server from the ground up using AngularJS, Java, and a services-oriented architecture. The result: a faster and richer user experience.
When you log in as an administrator, you’ll see the revamped content management section. We’ve replaced pagination with infinite scrolling, which makes browsing through content a breeze. And the Universal Search feature helps you quickly locate workbooks, users, and data sources. Both features are powered by Solr, the search platform behind many of the world's largest Internet sites.
In Tableau Server 9.0, you can perform bulk operations against multiple items, or perform specific actions against a single item. The list of available actions is updated depending on your selection context. For example, if you select multiple data sources, the actions specific to the selection context will be enabled, as seen in the example below. The “more” drop-down menu shows additional actions available on the selected items.
Actions that perform bulk operations have built-in permission checks. If a user tries to apply an unpermitted action, an error message will pop up.
For an action on a single selected item, the Server checks your permissions and updates the state of the menu items. If you don’t have permission to perform an action, the menus are disabled. For instance, in the example below, you can see that “edit connection” is disabled.
