    Tableau reuse existing connection string in tableau server for new extract

    Maheshh C K

      Hello Team,

       

      I would like to know whether we can store the connection string of a database connection in Tableau server and use the same for new extract being published from desktop to server.

       

      For Example:

      I need to publish a new extract to server

       

      Extract Name: ElectronicStudents

       

      I can publish with Test Environment details into the server. However i dont have connection details of the production. However we can store it in a encrypted way if possible on the server & use the same after publishing in production.

       

      Kindly help me over here.

       

      Thanks

      Maheshh
