    Automate Tableau report that connects to Athena

    Sunil Ch

      I have a tableau report deployed onto Tableau Server. It connects to S3 using AWS athena. When I run the report on the server I get a prompt to enter the AWS Access Key and Secret Access Key(The report uses Live connection). Once I enter it the report works as expected. I now want to use "tabcmd" to automate the running of this report in the morning and email it to some users. This method is not working and I get a "500 Internal Server Error". I suspect that this is because the report needs the AWS Key and password. How do I embed the Key and Password in the report? or How can I pass this from the command line?

       

      Thanks.

       

      UPDATE: Never mind. When publishing the report under the "DataSources" section there is an option to "Embed password" for authentication.
