I am pretty new to Tableau Server.
Trying to understand back up procedures and disaster recovery for Tableau Server..
What happens if we publish workbooks with live data connection and our database goes down?
Will we still be able to access Tableau Server and view dashboards?
Does Tableau Server use cached data to run dashboard?
To the experts, do you recommend live connection for published workbooks or publish data sources to Tableau Server data engine?
No your dashboard wont being show any data if your data base goes down.
With a published data source like extract you can be able to see the data.
