    Restrict tableau server user from accessing published data sources from tableau desktop

    Stephen Lavery

      Hi All,

       

      When working with a published data source the 'connect' permission needs to be enabled in order for the published workbooks using that data source to be viewed on tableau server. However, this means that if a user has access to tableau desktop they can connect to the data source and see the underlying data/calculations, which I don't want my end user to be able to do.

       

      It seems like there should be a way around this. Any thoughts?

       

      Kind Regards,

      Stephen
