    Different credentials for desktop and server

    Dmitry Antonov

      When I create a workbook in Tableau Desktop I connect to a DB, for example Postgres using one set of login and password. After publishing this workbook I'd like the server to access the DB using different credentials. I know I can edit the datasource on server manually and change username and password. The problem is I'll have many workbooks for which I'll have to modify credentials every time I publish it on server.

      Another option is to publish a datasource to the server separately and change the credentials. It is not much better as for every workbook I'll have a unique datasource as I'm not planning to reuse most of the datasources.

      Are there any other options to achieve my goal without additional datasources editing?
