Connect Tableau Cloud to the Salesforce Data Cloud

As of Tableau release 2023.2 and Data Cloud Summer 23 release, Salesforce introduces a new connector, Salesforce Data Cloud connector. The new Tableau connector seamlessly connects Data Cloud and Tableau Desktop. The Data Cloud connector is available for Tableau Cloud, Tableau Desktop and Tableau Prep.

Benefits of the Salesforce Data Cloud Connectors

  • The connector eliminates the additional step to install the connector with a Taco file and a JDBC driver.
  • The connector is data spaces aware with improved usability that shows the object label in Tableau connect UI instead of the object API name.
  • The connector is powered by accelerated queries.

Warning: The Customer Data Platform connector will be deprecated in October 2023. You can use the connector until it’s been retired. After the connector is retired, it’s removed from the Tableau user interface and any data sources using the connector will no longer work as expected. Typically, a deprecated connector will be retired 1–2 releases after it’s deprecated.

New users: If you’re a new user, you can use the new Salesforce Data Cloud connector.
