    Will Tableau Server refresh from a data source on a webdav path?

    Jonathan Macdonald

      Trying to troubleshoot an issue with Tableau Server - an extract has been published to server and scheduled to run automatic refreshes. The underlying source is an Excel file located on Sharepoint. The extract fails to refresh because it can't find the file at the path.

       

      I have given the server run as account permissions to the Sharepoint site, but the path is a WebDAV path, e.g.

       

      \\teams.company.net@SSL\DavWWWRoot\sites\sitename\

       

      so it's not a proper UNC path.

       

      Before I start troubleshooting network/firewall issues, can someone tell me whether Tableau Server supports refreshes from a WebDAV URL/path? I can't seem to find any documentation on this.
