    WDC URL and Kerberos

    Peter Keyzers



      I'm in the process of creating a WDC to retrieve some JSON data from a custom backend. This works fine when I run in my local development environment, however, when I've deployed this onto our server, we need to have Kerberos authentication to be able to read the WDC HTML page. This means that when I use Tableau Desktop 10.2 to try and retrieve the HTML page with the WDC embedded, I get a security failure.


      Are there any tricks that I can use that would allow the desktop to use a Kerberos-enabled connection to retrieve the WDC HTML page? There don't seem to be any obvious options that I can set in the UI to control this, and I'm struggling to find an official list of command line options that I can try out.
