    Application name in Data connections

    Gunarathinam Mahalingam


      All our tableau workbooks connects to live SQL Server database via LIVE or EXTRACT Connection.


      To ease the troubleshooting on SQL Server database, we need to monitor all the connection from Tableau server and workbooks.


      I am searching something similar to Application Name in connection string, this will help us to filter-out all the queries from Tableau using App name.


      Data Source=<TheServer>; Initial Catalog=<TheDB>; User Id=<Username>; Password=<myPassword>;Application Name=<App Name>;


      Unfortunately, we couldn't able to create explicit login for Tableau data connections, we have to use the apps connection string.


      Thanks in advance.
