Resources
Tableau Server: 10.5

To install, follow the instructions below to download the driver, put it in the correct location, and set the appropriate permissions.

Note: The Amazon Athena driver is a JDBC driver so it doesn't require an odbc.ini file.

You can download the JDBC driver (.jar file) from the Amazon Athena User Guide on Amazon's website.

After you download the .jar file, copy it to this location on the Linux computer:

/opt/tableau/tableau_driver/jdbc

If the directory does not exist, create it and make sure it is readable by the "tableau" user. To do this:

  1. Create the directory:

    sudo mkdir -p /opt/tableau/tableau_driver/jdbc

  2. Copy the downloaded driver file to the location, replacing </path/to/file> with the path and <driver file name> with the name of the driver you downloaded:

    sudo cp </path/to/file/><driver file name>.jar /opt/tableau/tableau_driver/jdbc

  3. Set permissions so the file is readable by the "tableau" user, replacing <driver file name> with the name of the driver you downloaded:

    sudo chmod 755 /opt/tableau/tableau_driver/jdbc/<driver file name>.jar
