How to disable Redshift/Greenplum cursors 


  • Tableau Desktop
  • Redshift 
  • Pivotal Greenplum


Add the customization string value='UseDeclareFetch=0 in a .TDC file. 
For more information about .TDC files, see Make customizations global with a .TDC file

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
