I am working on the WDC with custom authentication. My connector brings multiple table with standard connector to specify Join. Everything works very well. I love how the connector interface works! I do however have one issue. In the Init method of the Data Gathering Phase I check the the validity of the password (sessionToken) if I detect that it is invalid I call abortForAuth(). This works perfectly in simulator. In Tableau desktop abortForAuth throws an error on the first attempt. Subsequent attempts work as expected without errors.
I ran out of ideas on how to debug I or how to detect what that error might be. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
My work flow:
- Load Tableau -> WDC -> Navigate To My Connector -> Authenticate -> Load Data
- Make Password(sessionToken) invalid. This occurs outside of Tableau.
- Go back to Tableau -> Refresh All Extracts My error occurs at this point
- Refresh All Extracts again works fine
I'd suggest you would need to provide your code in order to get specific help.
