Hi

Can I connect  Tableau 2020.2 to Splunk 8.0.3 version using the Splunk ODBC driver? I have installed a 64 bit Splunk ODBC driver since Tableau is also 64 bit but getting error " "Thanks!

Error "Error with HTTP API, error code: Couldn't connect to server"

Someone just told me that the error is because "The Splunk ODBC connector is compatible with Splunk Enterprise 5.x and 6".

Thanks for inputs.

One quick question : Is there any configuration required at Splunk side to enable us to access the tables in tableau.

I was able to connect to Splunk Server  of my organization using Tableau but do not see the tables.

Based on quick look to documents, no need for additional configuration on Splunk server side.

Splunk's ODBC driver was unavailable for a while, but is back and is compatible with Splunk 8.

Did you follow the instructions at https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/ODBC/3.0.1/UseODBC/Installation and verify the installation as per https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/ODBC/3.0.1/UseODBC/Verifyinstallation ?
