    Tableau Impersonation with SQL Server Issues

    Santosh Veluguri

      Hello All,


      I have a read a lot of documentation on how Tableau and SQL Server impersonation works but unfortunately after doing all the configuration I still am facing issues.


      We have an Active Directory Domain in our company and users are setup in SQL Server database as Active Directory Users and they have access setup so that they can access the appropriate data.


      But when users connect to Tableau portal, after initial login when they click on the workbook and the sheet, they are being asked for Database login information. Looks like Tableau only accepts SQL Authentication where as I expect it to auto-login to the database based on the Tableau login information (which is already Active Directory based)


      Can you please help me understand if anybody has used Tableau Impersonation with SQL Server successfully.


      Appreciate your time.
