It's because Tableau online is hosted by Tableau, whereas your SQL server is on prem with your company. To allow Tableau to access the data in another environment, you need bridge.
The alternative could be to put the SQL data into a cloud environment which Tableau Online can access.
Thanks! And I can't give access Tableau Online to my server? This is my client server so i can't move the DS to another server. In that case i will need Tableau Bridge right?

Then yes, looks like Tableau Bridge would be the route to go down.
