Common Use Cases for the Connector

Some common use cases for Tableau Connector include:

Connection Types

Tableau connections use the following authentication types:

    • Hyper Connection

  • Rest Configuration

Hyper Configuration requires you to provide a path to the hyperd executable file. It is not possible to use Hyper Configuration and its operations in CloudHub because CloudHub does not allow executing external code due to security reasons.
