Manage projects and workbooks in your Tableau siteComponent key: tableau
Tableau is an interactive data visualization software company focused on business intelligence. The Tableau component allows you to manage your users, projects, workbooks, and connections through the Tableau Rest API.
Tableau Token Connection
This component uses token authentication to interact with the Tableau API. To generate a token:
- Log in to Tableau
- Click the user icon in the top right, and click My Account Settings
- Under Personal Access Tokens, type in a Token Name and select Create new token. Take note of the Token Name and Token Secret - you'll enter those into Prismatic in a moment
- Look at your Tableau URL.
It'll look like
https://10ay.online.tableau.com/#/site/MarketingTeam/workbooks. You'll use the
10ay.online.tableau.comportion as your Host Name, and
MarketingTeamas your Site ID.
Now, add a Tableau step to Prismatic. This will automatically create a Tableau connection config variable. Fill in the config variable with the Token Name, Token Secret, Host Name and Site ID that you noted above.
For additional information regarding authentication, please refer to the Tableau docs.
