Perhaps you misunderstood me. I want to get access not to write data to tableau. I want to access the Source and deshboards inside tableau

Hi @Nuke_Attokurov -

Unfortunately I don’t believe this is possible, at least not without a lot of work. As part of the licensing for the Tableau API (which our current nodes use under the hood), Tableau only allows for one-way data transfer. That is, the nodes can send data TO Tableau, but not receive data FROM Tableau.

There way be a workaround for this involving Python and/or REST, but I’m not aware of a working example yet. Maybe someone else here in the community has given it a shot?

I would assume you can use as already proposed by @ScottF python (or r / java ) snippet or a get request node with specific authentication header to access tableau server (details should be listed in their api documentation)

@Daniel_Weikert, pls can you help me to connect to tableau connect with java snippet?

I couldn’t figure out how the tableau API works.

I do not have access to Tableau Server right now but the documentation here might help you with that
Tableau Rest API
