Tableau Connector for DB2

Build 20.0.7745

CData Tableau Connector for DB2


The CData Tableau Connector for DB2 offers self-service integration with Tableau. The connector facilitates live access to DB2 data in Tableau using the connection window. The connector also provides direct querying to visualize and analyze DB2 data.

The connector supports Tableau Desktop 2020.1 or later and Tableau Prep 2020.4.1 or later. For older versions of Tableau, the CData ODBC Driver for DB2 or the CData JDBC Driver for DB2 can serve as an alternative means of connecting to DB2 data in Tableau.

Getting Started

See Getting Started for a guide to create a DB2 Data Source in Tableau. The guide will walk you through Installing the Connector and then Configuring a Connection via the connection builder.

Once a connection has been configured, see Getting Data to set up a data source that offers live connectivity to DB2.

Using the Connector

See Using the Connector to customize data access and visualize data. You can further customize the exact DB2 data pulled by Using Custom SQL Queries.

Refer to Visualizing Data to create and work with Tableau visualizations.

See Defining Custom Views to construct virtual tables whose contents are determined by a pre-configured query, which will then be discovered among existing table metadata.

Connection String Options

The Connection properties describe the various options that can be used to establish a connection.
