Question

How to connect to a MySQL view.

Environment

  • Tableau Desktop
  • MySQL

Answer

Views appear together with tables under the Table heading on the Date Source tab (after logging into the database) in Tableau Desktop. So to connect to a view in MySQL, use the same procedure for connecting to a table. For more information, see the MySQL connector example.
