Ensure the Run As User account has read permissions to the SQL Server database.
Tableau Server uses the Run As User account to connect to SQL Server databases. For extract refreshes from SQL Server data sources to work, the Run As User account will need read and connect permissions to the SQL Server database to refresh the extract.
