Send to Tableau Server

KNIME Tableau Integration version 4.3.0.v202011301607 by KNIME AG, Zurich, Switzerland

Sends the input data to a Tableau Server. The node uses the Tableau Hyper API to generate a hyper file and, secondly, send that hyper file as a datasource to the Tableau Server via the Tableau REST API.

Uses version 2.8 of the Tableau Server REST API. Therefore the minimum Tableau server version is 10.5.


Main Configuration

The URL of the server to connect to. Including the protocol 'http://' or 'https://'.
Username and Password
Select this option to authenticate using your username and password.
The username of the user to sign in as. The user must have permissions to publish to the specified site.
The password of the user to sign in as.
Site Content URL
The site URL. Pass an empty string to connect to the default site.
Access Token
Select this option to authenticate using an access token.
Authentication Token
The authentication token which will be used to make API call to the Tableau server.
Site Id
The identifier of the site to use.
The id of the project to publish the extract to. Choose a project by pressing the "Browse..." button.
Data Source
The name of the data source to create on the server.

Specify the behavior of the node in case the output datasource already exists. Overwrite will replace an existing datasource, Append will append the input table to the end of the datasource and Abort will issue an error during the node's execution (to prevent unintentional overwrite).
