    Is it possible to configure Tableau Server 8.1.3 to communicate with a remote instance of SQL Server using SSL?

      I need to create a secure connection between Tableau Server and a client's SQL server.

       

      The client has opened a port in their firewall and coded the port to only permit access to SQL Server and to only work with the outside IP address used by Tableau Server.

       

      As an added layer of security, I would like to use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to encrypt the data traffic between Tableau Server and the client's SQL Server.

       

      Is it possible to configure Tableau Server 8.1.3 to communicate with a remote instance of SQL Server using SSL?

       

      Thanks,
