    Connecting Tableau Desktop to a MySql on Amazon Web Services EC2

    Alexander Severinsen

      Dear all


      I have MySQL running on Linux on a EC2 instance on Amazon. I am trying to access the MySQL server from Tableau Desktop from my local machine. However, I am not able to connect. I am uncertain what to to next. I also have MySQL Workbench installed on my local machine. No problem connecting to the server from the workbench, but that is because MySQL workbench first sets up a SSH tunnel where I can point to a keypair file.

      Any suggestions what I might try? Other having similar challenges? Can Tableau Desktop be configured to set up a SSH tunnel in the connection GUI?


      Kind regards
