Tableau Connector for Wasabi

Build 21.0.7930

Configuring a Connection

The connector comes with a connection builder which allows you to build and test your connection settings outside of Tableau. It also allows you to create a connection string, which can be used to provide options not listed in the connection dialog in Tableau.

Configuring a Connection Builder

There are two ways to access the connection builder:

  • On Windows, there will be a shortcut called Connection Builder in the start menu, under the CData Wasabi Tableau Data Connector folder.
  • The connection builder can also be started by going to the driver install directory and running the .jar file in the lib directory.

In the connection builder, you can set values for connection properties and click the Test Connection button to validate that they work. You can also use the Copy to Clipboard button to save the connection string for use with Tableau.

Connecting to Wasabi

To connect to Wasabi set AccessKey and SecretKey in the connection string.

Set the following to refine data access:

  • Set this Region to the region where your Wasabi data is hosted.

Obtaining the Access Key

  1. Sign in to the Wasabi console.
  2. To create or manage the access keys for a user, select the Access Keys tab.
  3. Click Create New Access Key and use the credentials that will be displayed to authenticate to Wasabi services.

Next Step
