    Connect to a Live Data Source in Tableau Server?

    Grant Offermann

      Hi Everyone,


      I've been using Desktop for about 6 months and we just got our Tableau Server installed about a month ago so I'm still taking it all in.  I have question about connecting to a data source in Tableau Server. 


      I see that I can publish data sources through logging into Tableau Desktop.  Is there a way to do a direct connection to a SQL server database from Tableau Server?  Or do I always need to connect through Desktop first?


      Thanks a lot!
