    Connect live and database updates

    Saken Kulkarni

      Hi all,

       

      I have a quick question. I know that in Tableau, you can connect live or work in memory. If you are using in memory, it seems that you can schedule automatic refreshes of the data.

       

      But if you are using a live connection, will data automatically be updated. For instance, let us say that I have an established connection to a DB2 database and I use Tableau server. On Monday, my database has updated. If I log in on Tuesday, will my Tableau visualizations on server be automatically updated to reflect that database update.

       

      Thanks!
