Before you can install the 1010data Tableau Connector, you must have the following:
  • Tableau 2021.2 or later
  • Java 8 or above (download the latest version of Java for your operating system from if necessary)

To install the Tableau Connector:

  1. Find the JDBC Driver and the Tableau Connector downloads at this link.

  2. Download both the JDBC Driver installation file for your operating system (jdbc_win.exe for Windows or jdbc_mac.dmg for Mac) and the Tableau Connector file (1010data.taco).
    Both files are now in your downloads directory.

  3. Run the installer.
    The Install CData JDBC Driver for 1010data screen appears.

  4. Follow the prompts in the CData JDBC Driver for 1010data installer to install the connector. You can keep the default directory for the connector.
  5. Click Close when the setup is complete.
  6. Move the 1010data.taco file you downloaded to the folder C:\Users\[USERNAME]\Documents\My Tableau Repository\Connectors.
  7. In the directory where you installed the Tableau Connector, find the cdata.jdbc.c1010.jar file. It is in a lib subdirectory.
  8. Copy the cdata.jdbc.c1010.jar file to the following directory:
    On Windows: C:\Program Files\Tableau\Drivers.

    On macOS: ~/Library/Tableau/Drivers. You will need to show hidden files in the Finder or use the Terminal to copy the file, as follows:
    cp cdata.jdbc.c1010.jar  ~/Library/Tableau/Drivers
You can now connect to Tableau using the instructions in Connect to 1010data from Tableau.
