Dremio Tableau integration requires:

Creating a Live Connection to a Dataset from Dremio

To open a dataset in Tableau from within Dremio, you can use the Analyze button in the upper right-hand corner of a dataset view. Just follow these steps:

  1. In Dremio UI, go to a dataset you want to work with and click on the dataset.

  2. Select Tableau from the Analyze button's dropdown menu.

  3. Click on the file that you just downloaded and enter your Dremio credentials.

  4. Dataset is ready to be used in Tableau.

How does it work?

When you click the Analyze (Tableau) button, Dremio generates a Tableau Datasource (.tds) file that represents a "live connection" to your Dremio dataset. No actual data is stored in this file, and you can think of it as a shortcut to a Tableau session with a preconfigured view of your data.

Creating a Dremio Source in Tableau

  1. Open Tableau Desktop and select Other Databases (ODBC) as the connection type for a new connection:

  2. Select Dremio Connector from the DSN dropdown and press Connect.

Your Dremio datasets will now be accessible from within Tableau. Just hit enter in the text field of the next screen's Schema dropdown to see what's available to explore on your cluster.
