Answered by Rafal Wilinski


Yes, Tableau can connect to Amazon DynamoDB, a NoSQL database service provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS). To connect Tableau to DynamoDB, you can use the Amazon Redshift Connector for Tableau, which allows you to connect to various data sources, including DynamoDB. Once connected, you can use Tableau to visualize and analyze your DynamoDB data.

Here are the general steps to connect Tableau to DynamoDB:

  • Install the Amazon Redshift Connector for Tableau. You can download the connector from the Tableau website.
  • In Tableau, click on the "Connect to Data" button and select "Amazon Redshift" from the list of data sources.
  • Enter your AWS credentials (Access Key and Secret Key) in the connection dialog.
  • In the connection dialog, select the "Amazon DynamoDB" option from the list of available data sources.
  • Select the DynamoDB table you want to connect to and enter any additional connection details, such as the region and endpoint.
  • Click the "Connect" button to establish the connection between Tableau and DynamoDB.
  • Once the connection is established, you can start building visualizations and analyzing your DynamoDB data.
