    Saving DB Connection as Configuration File in Tableau

    Raj Garimilla

      Hello all,

       

      We have live db connections in our Tableau Server. For disaster recovery, we have copy of database.

      How do we switch the database connections in each work book to point to new database if the main database goes down?

      It works if we changes the database connections in Desktop and republish the work books. But this is not possible when we have 100 workbooks.

      Is there a way to save the db connection properties in a config file in Tableau ? Did any one had issue ?

       

      Thanks,

      Raj
