    workbook connected using SQL server database prompting for credentials again and again

    Srinivas K



      We have a workbook connected live to SQL server and published to Server using Windows Authentication . when we open the workbook it is prompting for password. Though we provided the password, it is not taking the credentials and prompting for password again.


      I have researched forums and understood that , when we use Windows Authentication to connect to SQL server database, The database is validated using Tableau Server Run as account.


      I have checked the Server Run as account configuration in Tableau Server and it is 'NT Authority/ Network service'.  Does that mean SQL Server should have permissions to the account 'NT Authority/ Network service' ?  Could anyone help on this.



      Thank you,
