    MySQL grayed out in "Connect to Data"

    Thomas Lavery

      Hello all,

       

      This might be something really simple. In the "connect to data" area of Tableau most of the "On a Server" options for data connections are unavailable (see attached png). Specifically, I need to connect to a MySQL database which is stored locally using port 3306 which is just the default settings.

       

      Does anyone have any ideas as to why this might be occurring? How can I make the MySQL option available?

       

      Thanks for your time.
