Tableau connection with PostgreSQL Connection-Pool not working

Hello Community,

im trying to publish a postgresql data source to our tableau-server. Connecting to the data source via tableau-desktop and then publishing it works fine. However when im trying to connect to the data source on the server I get an ERROR saying „unsupported startup parameter: options“. This seems to be related to the pg_bouncer. Does anyone know how to make the connection work or has some experience with a similar ERROR?

Thanks, Nils

Apparently this is a bug in the current version of tableau.
