To view the underlying SQL Queries in Tableau, we mainly have two options:
- Use the Performance Recording Feature: You have to create a Performance Recording to record the information about the main events you interact with the workbook. Users can view the performance metrics in a workbook created by Tableau.
Help -> Settings and Performance -> Start Performance Recording.
Help -> Setting and Performance -> Stop Performance Recording.
- Reviewing the Tableau Desktop Logs: You can review the Tableau Desktop Logs located at C:UsersMy DocumentsMy Tableau Repository. For live connection to the data source, you can check log.txt and tabprotosrv.txt files. For an extract, check tdeserver.txt file.
