Advanced tab not available in connector window of Databricks on Tableau Server and Tableau Cloud

Issue

When trying to connect Databricks from Tableau Server, the Advanced tab is not available in the connector window. However, the Advanced tab can be displayed in Tableau Desktop Databricks connector.
 

Environment

  • Tableau Server
  • Tableau Cloud
  • Databricks

Resolution

As a workaround, use Tableau Desktop to connect to Databricks and key in the required extra ODBC parameter values in the Advanced tab, then publish the data source/workbook to Tableau Server or Tableau Cloud.

Vote on the Tableau Community Idea to have this option in a future release.

Cause

Tableau Server and Tableau Cloud currently do not have the Advanced tab available in the connector window of Databricks.
