Integration of Tableau and Amazon CloudWatch

Tableau – a data visualisation software that helps to connect with the data in a fast and easy way. Cloudwatch – a cloud computing service that allows you to monitor your applications, servers, and resources.

Integration of Tableau and Amazon CloudWatch

To integrate Tableau with Amazon CloudWatch, you need to first connect your account with Tableau. There are two ways to do this like

  • If you have an AWS account, you can get started through the AWS Management Conspe. You can then select the “IAM Users” option under “Security Credentials”. From here select the “Add User” button and then “Create New Users”. Then you will see the “User Sign-up” page where you will be prompted for personal information. The last step is to verify this information by answering multiple choice questions. This is basically the same process as creating a new AWS user from the AWS Management Conspe.
  • Through the IAM conspe, you can also create a user that has access to only the AWS services used by Tableau (CloudWatch. For example, if you already have an AWS user, you can use this user’s access keys for Tableau. You would then create a new user through IAM without further configuration.
