Question

How to track the expiration dates for Snowflake OAuth tokens since they expire every 90 days (by default).

Environment

  • Tableau Server
  • Snowflake

Answer

Use a custom admin view:
  1. If you have not already done so, enable access to your Tableau Server repository by following the instructions in this document Enable access to the Tableau Server repository.
  2. Download the workbook (.twb) attached to this article, and open it in Tableau Desktop.
  3. In the PostgreSQL connection dialog box, click 'Edit connection', update the Server field with the name or URL for Tableau Server and click 'Sign In'. (For a distributed server installation, enter the name or IP address of the node where the repository is hosted.)
