    GA Extract Refresh Fails on Tableau Server - Error "Connectionless Failure"

    Michail Scholiadis

      Hi guys,


      I am using Tableau 9. I have published a Google Analytics connection with embedded passwords etc. From Tableau Server, when I run a refresh, I get the error "Connectionless Failure".


      When I search for that error, the solution has to do with testing live connections etc., which aren't relevant for GA.


      My guess is it has something to do with authentication - from Desktop, when you refresh a GA connection, the first time, it asks you to accept the Google 'link'. I am guessing that Tableau Server requires some form of authentication - but I stand to correction.


      This seems like a pretty silly error to have with a pre-set connection type such as GA?


      Hope someone can assist.
