    Cannot edit data source to change login credentials

    Jeff Johnson

      I have an Oracle data source and am using Tableau desktop. I need to update the username and password associated with it. However, every time I right click and do Edit Data Source, it still tries to connect with the existing embedded credentials, and fails with 'An error occurred while communicating with Oracle Database'. I just want to put in new credentials.

       

      I'm in a Catch 22 here. I would have thought I could just edit it like every other connection. My Teradata connections work fine and I can edit the credentials without a problem.
