When attempting to refresh a Google Analytics data source in Tableau Cloud, the refresh is sent to Tableau Bridge instead of connecting directly from Tableau Cloud.


  • Tableau Cloud 2022.2
  • Google Analytics


To workaround the issue, change the Network Type for the data source connection to Tableau Cloud.
  1. Login to Tableau Cloud and navigate to the data source. 
  2. Select the Connections tab, select the actions menu and Edit Connection..
  3. Under Network type, select Tableau Online, and Save.


The behavior is related to Known Issue ID 1425643 which is currently under investigation.
