    Conncection via SSH tunnel

    BI Tool

      In order to access our data sources securely we need to be able to connect to our database server via an encrypted (SSH) tunnel & private key auth and access the database via non-exposed ports from inside the local network.

      For this SSH tunnel I need to be able to supply a tunnel host (not necessarily same as database host), port (not necessarily 22), username and private key & passphrase and use these as starting point to connect to a local data source.

       

      [tableau server] ----ssh:22----> [remote-host.domain.com] ----postgres:5432---->[postgres@local.ip]

       

      Does anybody know if we can specify this like any other db client (see screenshots Navicat below) in tableau server and Desktop?
