How to Connect from Tableau to SCP HANA

619 Views Last edit Jul 20, 2018 at 06:13 PM 2 rev

Hello,

I've a requirement where I need to connect Tableau on-prem tool to SCP tenant. Tableau should be able to access data from HANA DB available on SCP platform for it's reporting. I got a blog (link given below) where Tunnel method is getting used. But, this tunnel stays valid for 24 hours which can't be used in productive environment.

So, can I use cloud connector to connect tableau ? If yes, it would be great if you can tell what would be the procedure and if no cloud connect then what would be the procedure for this connectivity.

I could see from some blogs that in Tableau side, HANA client would need to be installed. So what else apart from that. How on-prem to cloud bridge would be made.

Any pointers would be appreciated.
