If you are trying to leverage the ODBC connection to Athena. The connection can be modified with a .tdc file.
More information on available customizations can be found: Customize and Tune ODBC Connections - Tableau
Hope this helps!
I have the exact same issue. If making the JDBC driver wont work, is there another options? I am not using ODBC.
I downloaded the AthenaJDBC.jar file and put it here. C:\Program Files\Tableau\Drivers I even tried to rename it to awsathena to match the url string.
I created the athena.properties with the these fields
I don not have an access key or secret access key since we are federated.
So far neither the Athena Source or the Other JDBC source works
