    Tableau server and Tableau desktop connection question


      Hi All!


      I am new to the Tableau set up and would like to find out more if I am on the correct page.

      Currently, I would like to link my Data Source Server to the dashboards LIVE.

      Is the below configuration correct?



      Tableau Desktop <--> Tableau Server <--> Data Source Server

      1) Link Tableau server to Data source (Data will be available in Tableau server)

      2) Link Tableau desktop to Tableau Server (to create dashboards with the linked data) and publish the dashboards into Tableau Server.


      Hope you all experts can advise! Thank you
