Connecting Splunk to Tableau Issue

Path Finder

I'm trying to connect Splunk to Tableau, so I can create Tableau visualization using all my Splunk reports. I am using Tableau Version: 10.3, and I installed Splunk ODBC: 2.1.1.

I'm sure that I already input the correct server and credentials, but I'm receiving error below.

[Splunk]SplunkODBC Error with HTTP API, error code: Couldn't connect to server

I'm not sure how to triage this problem. Any input will be appreciated.

Hi Limalbert,
You can see this blog for total integration of Tableau with Splunk.

Verify that splunk is up and running, verify the port configuration, verify the credentials, both outside of and inside of splunk.

If I couldn't find the issue that way, I would use Excel to connect using the same credentials and verify whether the issue was within Splunk or within Tableau.
