Error connecting Tableau Desktop to Snowflake data source:

CURLerror (curl_easy_perform() failed) - code=60 msg='Peer certificate cannot be authenticated with given CA certificates'

Environment

  • Tableau Desktop
  • Windows 10
  • Snowflake

Cause

According to the Snowflake Knowledge Base, "the error typically means the Snowflake ODBC client was unable to verify the current validity of the signed Snowflake certificate issued by a trusted CA (certificate authority). If communication is blocked between a Snowflake client and the CA site or OCSP responder, a TLS/SSL error is generated."
