    Internet communication error when retrieving published Tableau server data source

    Ben Lampere

      I created a new worksheet and had a connection with a mysql database by clicking on the following on the connections page.

      I joined 2 tables together.


      then I took that data source and published it to our tableau server.

      I want our end user to be able to edit the tableau worksheets without having to enter a database password. After some research I realized that you have to publish the data source to embed the password so it doesn't prompt the user.


      However when I created a new worksheet and made a data source connecting to the tableau database it gives the following error when I try to preview the data source that I just published.


      This is the error.

      Does anyone know what could cause this error?
