    ODBC Connection Authentication - Desktop vs Server


      Simple question, I hope:


      1. Bob creates a workbook in Tableau Desktop using a live connection to ODBC.

      2. Bob uses his/her own database credentials to connect to the ODBC data source.

      3. Bob publishes the workbook to Tableau Server.


      4. Jane, a Tableau Explorer user with no database credentials or permissions at all, opens the Bob's workbook on Tableau Server.


      Question: Will Jane be able to explore the ODBC data using Bob's credentials, despite the fact that Jane has no database credentials?


      How does this change if the data is an ODBC connection extract, vs a live connection?
