The first thing I would want to verify is that "Prompt User" isn't selected on the Server end. This article is a good starting point:
Once you've verified that the correct options are set on both Tableau Server and when publishing, let us know if the issue still occurs.
Thanks. The issue seems to be a desktop issue. Even when I try to refresh all extracts, it prompts me 14 times (one for each data source) every time I do it.
I've opened a case and will see what we discover.
I am having the same exact issue. I upgraded from 9.3 to 10.1, used to get prompted 1 time for a password, now I am getting prompted for each data extract. I have about 30 data extracts in this particular workbook, all go to the same exact Oracle database using the same account. I can manually refresh each one without being prompted. When I look at each data source and its properties the password is clearly entered. This is incredibly annoying and frankly I wish I could go back to version 9.3. I have also submitted a case but hope this has been figured out!!!!
I believe this was fixed in 10.1.4 that was release in mid January 2017.
Do you know what version you are using? I was using 10.1.1 at the time when it happened to me.
I was using 10.1.1, upgraded to 10.1.5 and the problem has been recified !!!!!
Great solution if you can upgrade, but what about those of us stuck using 10.1.4 until our organization upgrades?
That would make sense... my organization is on 10.1.3.
