Virtual Connection is greyed out in Tableau Server

The Virtual Connection is greyed out on Tableau Server.
The Data Management Add-on license and at least one Creator user license needs to be activated on Tableau Server for the Virtual Connection option to be available.
Tableau Server was using Core licensing only and there was no Creator license activated.
If a Creator license has been purchased for your Tableau Server, obtain the license from the Tableau Customer Portal and activate the license, then restart Tableau Server.
If no Creator licenses have been purchased, please contact your Tableau Account Team.
