    Tableau access to encrypted SQL columns

    Hein Lochner

      I have sensitive data that is stored in a SQL 2016 table.  The sensitive columns are encrypted and a certificate generated which allows a limited number of people to access the decrypted data.  These columns are needed in a Tableau workbook to create a report that will be published to Tableau server with limited access.  The report will be published with a live link and not an extract. 


      I have all the relevant encryption keys and algorithms.  My problem is to get Tableau to read the decrypted data.  I searched for solutions but found very little on the subject.


      Has someone solved this problem?  Any assistance will be appreciated.
