    'Impersonate via server run as account' Authentication

    Rishabh Dhingra

      Hi,

       

      I am connected to a relational database using "Window NT Integrated Security" and then using custom SQL query. I have published the workbook on Tableau Server 8.3 using the data source authentication method 'Impersonate via server run as account' account

       

      However, I am getting an error while accessing the view on the server. Could someone help me in understanding how 'Impersonate via server run as account' works? And also when users try to access, do we need to add their individual accounts to the SQL database?

       

      Currently we have AD groups to manage database access.

       

      My windows account:- Rishabh Dhingra

      Tableau Server Run as Account:- XYZ

       

      Thanks,

      Rishabh
