Question

How to disable Redshift/Greenplum cursors 

Environment

  • Tableau Software (both Desktop and Server)
  • Redshift 
  • Pivotal Greenplum

Answer

Use the .tdc file that matches your database (Greenplum or Redshift)
For more information about .TDC files, see Make customizations global with a .TDC file
For information on using .TDC files with Tableau Server, please see Using a .tdc File With Tableau Server 

Note: Tableau does not test or support TDC files. These files should be used as a tool to explore or occasionally address issues with your data connection. Creating and maintaining TDC files requires careful manual editing, and there is no support for sharing these files.

Additional Information

By default, Tableau uses cursors when returning a resultset from Redshift
