Send to Tableau Server (TDE)

DeprecatedKNIME Tableau Integration - TDE Format version 4.3.0.v202011191649 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.

In order to use this library the user needs to perform the installation steps as described on the Tableau Integration page.


Main Configuration

The URL of the server to connect to.
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.
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.
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.


  1. Open the Tableau Preferences page and select Tableau TDE
  2. When prompted restart KNIME Analytics Platform
  3. Depending on your operating system, you need to perform additional installation steps, described in the preferences page.

Input Ports

Data to be sent to Tableau Server. Only primitive types (string, numbers, dates) are used.
