          Hi Vibhu,


          Please vote up the idea at the end



          How to view the SQL queries issued from Tableau to the data source.


          • Tableau Desktop
          • Tableau Server


          Option 1: Use the Performance Recording Feature

          For more information, see Create a Performance Recording

          and Interpret a Performance Recording Workbook

          for Tableau Desktop and Create a Performance Recording

          for Tableau Server.

          Option 2: Review the Logs

          In Tableau Desktop:

          • Navigate to the Logs folder inside the My Tableau Repository folder.
          • By default, the My Tableau Repository can be found inside the My Documents folder on Windows or the Documents folder on a Mac.
          • If you have a live connection to the data source, check the log.txt and tabprotosrv.txt files.
          • If you are using an extract, check the tdeserver.txt file.
          • The tabprotosrv.txt file often shows detailed information about queries.

          In Tableau Server:

          1. Generate a snapshot of Server logs.
          2. Unzip the archive logs.zip file.
          3. Navigate to the vizqlserver folder.
          4. Search for lines containing begin-query in the .txt files.
