Complete Setting up the Wave Analytics Platform
Enhance the Wave platform user experience and fine-tune Wave access to Salesforce data with optional setup procedures.
Enable Preview Thumbnails for All Lenses and Dashboards Make it easier for users to find their lenses and dashboards on the home page and on app pages. Replace the generic icons with preview thumbnails of the contents of all lenses and dashboards, including those assets that have row-level security restrictions.
Enable Downloading from Wave Analytics Enable users to download the results from lens explorations and dashboard widgets as images (.png), Microsoft® Excel® (.xls), or comma-separated values (.csv) files.
Grant Users Access to the Wave Dashboard Designer and Classic Designer To grant users access to either dashboard designer, assign each of them the “Create and Edit Wave Analytics Dashboards” user permission. For users to access the Wave dashboard designer, the Enable Wave Dashboard Designer setup option must also be enabled, which it is by default.
Enable the Wave REST API You can access Wave Analytics datasets and lenses programmatically using the Wave REST API. Selecting this option overrides the "APIEnabled" permission for individual users and gives all Wave users (including Community users) access to the Wave API.

Salesforce Data Access in Wave Analytics Wave Analytics requires access to Salesforce data when extracting the data and also when the data is used as part of row-level security. Wave Analytics gains access to Salesforce data based on permissions of two internal Wave Analytics users: Integration User and Security User.
