You can subscribe a Live connection , we do have lots of live connections to which we have subscribed
You just need to have embedded database credentials and it should work with live connections as well
- The view uses a live database connection: Views with live database connections, where you’re prompted for your database credentials when you first click the view, aren't available for subscription. A subscription includes a view (or workbook), data, and a schedule. To deliver the data required for the view, Tableau Server either needs embedded database credentials or data that doesn't require credentials. Where live database connections are concerned, Tableau Server doesn't have the credentials, only the individual users do. This is why you can only subscribe to views that either don’t require credentials or have them embedded.
Not sure about your criteria.Would you like to raise a support case here. ?
Really weird but when I came yesterday, subscriptions were now available for live connections. I guess I performed what ever steps needed to be done to enable them but there was a lag or required a restart of the server for them to take effect. Thanks for contributing Ritesh!
