Login Options

Tableau doesn’t support single sign-on or multi-factor authentication. Only sign in using username and password or personal access tokens is supported. Personal access tokens are long-lived authentication tokens that allow you to run automation with Tableau REST APIs without requiring hard-coded credentials or interactive login.

Tableau Output Tool Search

You can only search in full names, so you need to provide 'datasource name' instead of just 'name'.
