    Tableau / SAP BW  RFC Connection Error

    Marcus Dawideit



      i have a problem between the connection of Tableau Server and SAP.

      I tried to configure our tableau server as mentioned in the description.( Configuring Delegation from Tableau Server to SAP BW.pdf)

      But i open a report via Tableau server i get following error message:


      Datenbankfehler 0x80040E4D: SAP RfcOpenConnection Error. Group: 3 Key: RFC_LOGON_FAILURE, Message: No suitable SAP user found for external user identity



      Any ideas / advice ?

          Hello Marcus,


          Can you verify that the Tableau Server Run As user account can be used to access the SAP data source. This error message leads me to believe that the credentials coming from the Tableau Server Run As user have not been added to SAP to allow the connection. I would double check the configuration overall.


          Hope this helps!
