Tableau Connection

With the help of Tableau on Connect iPaaS, you can connect to three database engines. They are MySQL, PostgreSQL, and Oracle.

To connect your database with Connect iPaaS, you have to select the database engine you want to connect and also provide the details of your database server so that Connect iPaaS receives the required credentials to connect with the database and perform the desired actions.

We at RoboMQ pay utmost attention to keep your account secure. See our Security and Privacy Policies to learn more about how RoboMQ handles your account access.
