Send to Tableau Server

KNIME Tableau Integration version 3.6.0.v201805031009 by KNIME AG, Zurich, Switzerland

Sends the input data to a Tableau Server. The node uses the Tableau SDK library to generate a TDE file and, secondly, upload that TDE file to the Tableau Server.

Options

Main Configuration

Host
The URL of the server to connect to.
Username
The username of the user to sign in as. The user must have permissions to publish to the specified site.
Password
The password of the user to sign in as.
SiteID
The site ID. Pass an empty string to connect to the default site.
Project Name
The name of the project to publish the extract to.
Data Source
The name of the data source to create on the server.
Overwrite
If checked, overwrite an existing data source on the server that has the same name.
Proxy Username/Password
The username and password for the HTTP proxy. This method is needed only if the server connection is going through a proxy that requires authentication and is required here as the Tableau library does not inherit KNIME's proxy settings.
