The Tableau Server Internal Data Source Properties service was introduced in version 2020.1.0 and communicates with the Data Source Properties service. It is managed internally by Tableau Server, and cannot be configured by an administrator.

An instance of the Internal Data Source Properties service is automatically configured on any node that has an instance of the Data Source Properties service.
