    Actions being created in Database Table when connecting to Published Data Source

    Lazy Rambler



      I published an Oracle Table on the Tableau Server for the Users to Connect(Live connection with my password embedded) so that users can create reports out of it.


      Whn users are trying to connect to the published data source, actions like Create Tableau/Truncate Table are getting generated in the Database Audit.


      The interesting things is, the user account only has read access to the table.

      The entries are something like this :



      TimeStamp       OS_Username                                     DBUsername                  Action_Name           


      Time                 Tableau Run as User Account               My DB credentials           Create Table

      Time                Tableau Run as User Account              My DB credentials          Truncate Table




      Any ideas?
