Anybody try to package Tableau? It's some sort of analytics software. The base install is just a drag/drop into /Applications but then it wants admin rights to install the licensing service..

You have to have this command in a postinstall script:

/usr/sbin/installer -pkg "$3/Applications/Tableau.app/Contents/Installers/Tableau FLEXNet.pkg" -target /

Then you have to run this command to activate it:

/Applications/Tableau.app/Contents/Frameworks/FlexNet/custactutil -served -comm soap -commServer https://licensing.tableausoftware.com:443/flexnet/services/ActivationService?wsdl -entitlementID [your product key] -activatable 1
