How to rotate data source credentials to improve security

Environment

  • Tableau Desktop
  • Tableau Online
  • Tableau Server

Answer

Work with your database administrator to change the database credentials, and then update the database credentials in Tableau.

For detailed instructions on editing database credentials in Tableau after the changes have been made on the database side, see:
Edit Connections on Tableau Server
Edit Data Sources
Edit Connections on Tableau Online
Update Bridge Connection Information

To bulk update published data source and workbook connection information, this can be done by writing a script using REST API. See Update Data Source Connection and Update Workbook Connection for more information.
