Tableau Cloud

Tableau Online is a cloud-based platform offered by Tableau that allows users to publish, share, and collaborate on Tableau dashboards and visualizations securely over the Internet. It provides similar functionality to Tableau Desktop but with the added convenience of being accessible from any web browser.


Below are the prerequisites you need to fulfil before connecting the e6data cluster to Tableau Cloud:

  • Establish a Gateway connection in your cluster.

  • Tableau Cloud Version: 2023.3.0

  • You can obtain the connection details required from the Connection Information tab in the e6data cluster.


Get the necessary connection information for your cluster:

Once you have gathered this information, you can create a new connection in Tableau Cloud. To connect with Tableau Cloud, follow the below instructions:

  1. Login to Tableau Cloud.

  2. Select "Workbook" from the new tab.

  1. Navigate to the connector tab and select "Starburst Enterprises".

  1. Then, add the connection information.

    1. Server = Host

    2. Port = 443

    3. Username = user email id

    4. Password = Personal Access Token

  2. Tick the box to mandate SSL and configure SSL Verification to "FULL".

  3. Finally, click the "Connect" button.


e6data utilizes globally trusted certificates, ensuring that the host and port provided by the connection dialogue are adequate. Any e6data cluster necessitating authentication must also employ TLS/HTTPS. If adhering to globally trusted certificate best practices, utilize the cluster’s HTTPS URL in the connection string as detailed in the aforementioned steps.
