How to connect KNIME and Tableau

How can we use KNIME to connect files to Tableau? For example if we would like to have automation for files we get each week.So i have everything setup in Tableau but the problem is files update thing how can we just keep update the file or folder so it dont effect my current tableau template


From my understanding the most simple solution would be a fixed output file (location and name).
Of course you should not change the format of this file.

  1. Write from the KNIME workflow to that file
  2. Use this file as input for the Tableau report

KNIME provides Nodes to directly write a hyper file to Tableau Server.
For automating the KNIME workflow you would need to have KNIME Business Hub or rely on your Windows Task Scheduler
