Hey Jason -
Short answer is "no".
There are a couple of approaches you could take, but none of them are probably as "auto-magic" as you'd like:
- Don't embed passwords at all. Instead, use Tableau's Run As account to hit data sources (assuming they respect AD credentials - SQL Server, SSAS, etc). Advantage: Super-duper easy - This domain account will have to be updated anyway when your hit your expiration, but once you've done so, you're done. Disadvantage: You're giving one account access to an awful lot of data, and your biz policies may preclude same.
- Use a limited number of Data Server Data Sources with embedded passwords and base all workbooks off these data sources. Change PWs in the Tableau Portal
- Write a script which uses TabCmd to: 1) Download the workbook 2) Republish with the new AD password
- Hire a summer intern to change each data source in the portal for you
Thanks for the detailed reply. I had a feeling that was really the final answer....
Your alternate suggestions are in deed helpful.
Some pros and cons to each, as you call out.
Thanks again for the quick / and thorough reply
