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!
we can connect sql in desktop and publish to server.
if you want to connect published sql then open desktop and click server in connect menu and connect published sql.
