Environment

  • Tableau Desktop 2020.3 and older versions
  • Salesforce

Answer

In Tableau Desktop 2020.3 and older, there was option for signing in using username and password as well as OAuth authentication.
From Tableau Desktop 2020.4, it is OAuth authentication only for Salesforce connector.
There is no option for username/credential authentication. The option for Signing in with username and password is not provided. This is as designed.
