Dremio and Tableau Data Sources

#1

Greetings all,
I am trying to get Tableau Data Sources to work smoothly with Dremio, and seem to be having some issues.
I have the Dremio 64-bit ODBC connector/driver installed, I am able to test successfully, and I am able to connect Tableau to my underlying Dremio data.
What I don’t appear to be able to do (within Tableau) is use the Tableau functionality to publish a Tableau Data Source to the Tableau Server. I get a bad connection error, which does not make sense as I am able to pull data over a live connection.
Granted, is possible this is an issue with Tableau, not with Dremio, but I am exploring the issue from both sides.

Tableau Server and Tableau Desktop v 2018.3
Dremio 2.0

Appreciate any feedback.
Many thanks,

@DataSailor,

What is the specific error you get?

Is Tableau Server installed on Linux system?

Hello Ben,
Specific error is attached.

Tableau Server is installed on a Windows system.
One additional piece, data sources publish successfully if embedded in a Tableau workbook, but I get the below error when trying to publish the data source separately.

Hi @DataSailor,

Has the Dremio Connector been installed and configured on the Tableau Server side?

Hi @ben,
Yes, Dremio connector is installed on the Tableau Server side and 64-bit ODBC connection tests successfully.
