Confirm that you have provided valid credentials for this data source.
Unable to connect to data source with the supplied credentials, or no credentials provided.
Unable to authenticate using supplied user credentials.

  • Tableau Server
  • Tableau Online
  • Google BigQuery


Use one of the below options to workaround the issue. 

Option 1 Delete and Re-Add Saved Credentials for all BigQuery Connections
  1. While you’re signed in to Tableau Server or Tableau Online, display your Account Settings page.
  2. Under Saved Credentials for Data Sources, select Delete for the username next to Google BigQuery. 
  3. Select Add and re-enter the BigQuery account credentials. 
Note: If you have published BigQuery connections that do not use saved credentials, see Edit Connections on Tableau Online for steps to update them. 

Option 2 Republish the Workbook or Data Source With Embedded Credentials in the Connection

Option 3 Add Tableau to the Exempt Trusted Apps List
See Beta: Set session length for Google Cloud services for information on adding Tableau to the trusted exempt list for the session length feature. 


Google implemented a session duration control for how long third-party applications can use a refresh token for refreshing an expired access token.
