Hi Christopher -
There isn't any way of directly modifying / changing the name of a Tableau server published data source. You would have to bring it down to Tableau Desktop as a local copy, then republish under a different name. As you alluded to in your post, any workbooks connected o the "older" name would have to be pointed to the newly published (renamed) data source. This link is from an older post, but it addresses your issue: How can we rename data source names on the server???
Hi Mark, Thank you for replying.
It seems there isn't an easy way. ¿Is there any solid reason why this is'nt possible to do?
I don't know if Im being ignorant or something but, this could be a good feature on Tableau.
