Tableau Server Connection

image_pdfimage_print

Jedox Integrator currently supports connections to Tableau 10.5 and later. The connector can be used with the Tableau REST API. Tableau .tde files are no longer supported; the connector only supports .hyper files.

For this connection a Tableau Connector License is required.

Notes:

  • To use this component, the Visual C++ Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio 2013 has to be installed on the system where Jedox is running. Tableau SDK and Tableau Extract API must be downloaded and unzipped, and the respective file path of the bin folders must be added to the system “path” variable. Please refer to Tableau’s documentation.
  • Existing TDE file connections will be automatically migrated to TableauHyperFile connections, but the file extension must be manually changed from *.tde to *.hyper.
  • Logs can be read by adding environment variables TAB_SDK_LOGDIR and TAB_SDK_TMPDIR to the desired paths, if desired.
