    Adam Ratkewicz

      Tableau case 02128427 opened ( https://c.na26.visual.force.com/apex/Portal_Case_Page?id=50032000011T8F9AAK )  - Any help from the community is greatly appreciated! ------------------------ In 9.0, sending an empty connection tag would return the connection information. Not sure if that functionality is there in 9.3. I'm getting the the following error. Please provide direction to query data source connection information. Thanks!
