Connect your learning data to Tableau to analyze your data and create reports.

With the DataCamp Data Connector it's super easy to get started analyzing your data in Tableau. All you need to do is set up a connection using the Tableau Athena Connector and configure it using the credentials you can retrieve via the DataCamp Group hub.

Below is an easy step-by-step guide to set up the connection and start analyzing your Learning data.

Step 1: Install the ODBC driver

Download and install the Tableau Amazon Athena driver. You can download the official driver from the Tableau website:

If you are having trouble getting the driver installed as described on the Tableau website, try placing the .jar file in the ~Users/{yourusername}/Library/Tableau/Drivers where {yourusername} is the name of your profile on your workstation.

Step 2: Setup Athena connector in Tableau

Step 1: Quit and re-open Tableau

Step 2: Set up the connection in Tableau
