    Is it possible to change Authentication of Data connection if data source is an Excel file

    Su Yang

      I have a data extract published to Tableau server and is scheduled to refresh data extract daily. The source data is an Excel file in a shared drive that the tableau server account doesn't have the previlege to login. How can I change the authentication so the server can run the scheduled extract wtih my account and password to logged on to shared drive?


      More background: When I publish the data extract to Tableau Server, "Server Run As account" is the only authentication available.  My role in the Tableau Server is Publisher so I don't have much control as Admin.
