    How to use a data source only accessible to the server, not the developer?

    Eric Woltermann

      Dear community,

       

      being a total Tableau newbie, I immediately stumbled across a problem I cannot find a solution for in any documentation or community. I need to use a data source which I cannot access from my desktop using my own domain credentials. The Tableau Server however should be able to access the source, as it lives in a more privileged subnet and uses a different domain account.

       

      Is there a way of adding a data source "as the server" from Tableau Desktop?

       

      Thanks in advance,

      Eric

      I tried to move the post to the "Data Sources & Connections" category, however that isn't listed in the form...
