    Impersonation using Impala user account

    Atul Bhagwat

      Hi Experts,


      We have a requirement of not using Kerberos as a delegation method.

      Having said that, our expectation is as follows:


      1. Create a Impala service user account and enable it for impersonation.

      2. Use the Impala service user account to create a data connection via Tableau desktop

      3. Publish the data source.

      4. The end user when using the published data source, should not be able to edit/modify any fields for the data connection.

      5. When they connect using the published data source, the end user credentials should be passed to Impala via the delegation account.
