For example, if you connect to a 5.x database, use the latest 5.x driver.

  1. Close Tableau Desktop.
  2. Install the iODBC Driver Manager, if it's not already installed on your Mac. You can get the latest version (mxkozzz.dmg) from the iODBC.org website or download the file directly.

    Note: You must install iODBC before you install the MySQL ODBC connector.

  3. Download and install the MySQL ODBC connector for your Mac OS X version:

    For more information, see Installing Connector/ODBC on macOS on the MySQL website.

  4. Open Tableau Desktop and connect to Amazon Aurora for MySQL.

Note: We strongly recommend that you upgrade to the latest MySQL ODBC driver because it contains fixes for an outdated OpenSSL library and other vulnerabilities. For more information, see the Security Bulletin.

Tableau Prep: 2018.1.1 - 2019.2.3

Google Cloud SQL uses MySQL drivers. If you don't have MySQL drivers installed, follow the steps to install the Mac driver for MySQL.

Important: There have been some cases where MySQL driver 8.0.x can't connect to MySQL 5.x database. Therefore, we strongly recommend you use the latest driver version that most closely matches the database version you need to connect to. For example, if you connect to a 5.x database, use the latest 5.x driver.

  1. Close Tableau Prep Builder.
  2. Install the iODBC Driver Manager, if it's not already installed on your Mac. You can get the latest version (mxkozzz.dmg) from the iODBC.org website or download the file directly.

    Note: You must install iODBC before you install the MySQL ODBC connector.

  3. Download and install the MySQL ODBC connector for your Mac OS X version:

    For more information, see Installing Connector/ODBC on OS X on the MySQL website.

  4. Open Tableau Prep Builder and connect to Google Cloud SQL.

Note: We strongly recommend that you upgrade to the latest MySQL ODBC driver because it contains fixes for an outdated OpenSSL library and other vulnerabilities. For more information, see the Security Bulletin.

  2. Install the driver dependencies listed in the driver README file on the Teradata website.
  3. Install the driver with the following command, replacing [driver file name] with the name of the .rpm file:

    sudo yum install [driver file name].rpm

    For example:

    sudo yum install tdodbc1610-16.10.00.03-1.noarch.rpm

  4. After you install the driver, append the following entry to the /etc/odbcinst.ini file, if it’s not already there. Replace [driver version] with the verion of the driver and [file name] with the name of the shared library file used by the driver version you install.
    [Teradata]
    Description=Teradata ODBC Driver(64-bit)
    Driver=/opt/teradata/client/[driver version]/lib64/[file name].so

    For example, if you install Teradata ODBC driver version 16.20, you would add this entry:

    [Teradata]
    Description=Teradata ODBC Driver(64-bit)
    Driver=/opt/teradata/client/16.20/lib64/tdataodbc_sb64.so
