It looks like you published the connection from the VizAlertsConfig workbook as its own data source. That's not really the intended usage, actually. It's better to keep the VizAlertsConfig workbook as a standalone workbook with an embedded connection. You'll make your parameter changes and any customizations to the settings in that workbook. If you want to publish the connection there as its own data source so you can build other workbooks on top of it, you certainly can, and it won't hurt--but don't update the config workbook to use the published version. Keep it local.
