    Athena Connector with SSO

    Amit Narkar

      We have SSO enabled for Amazon AWS. I would like to connect to Athena in Tableau Desktop without manually entering Access Key and Secret Key.

      I could find post suggesting use of properties file but with no luck from my end.

       

      Amazon Athena - Tableau

      Customize JDBC Connections Using a Properties File

      Customize JDBC Connections Using a Properties File

      Using Athena with the JDBC Driver - Amazon Athena

       

      I am able to connect to Athena when I am providing Access Key and Secret Key.

      I need to bypass this process when using SSO. As per above posts I created athena.properties file with various key value pairs.

      e.g

      User=ABCDEFGHIJKL

      UID=ABCDEFGHIJKL

      Password=1234ASDFGH

      PWD=1234ASDFGH

      accessKey=ABCDEFGHIJKL

      secretKey=1234ASDFGH

       

      But I don't see fields populated on further launch of Tableau Desktop. I am using Tableau Athena connector not (other JDBC) connector option.

      Is there any other way to deal with SSO on Tableau Desktop and Tableau Server
