Project filter in Tableau loader

Hi Alteryx team,

 

would it be possible to include a project filter in the Tableau loader? Currently, the loader brings in all the projects from the selected sites. However, we have come across a situation when each department in a company has a couple of projects that they do not want to load.

 

The idea is that it would be possible to list the names of the projects that won't be loaded. It could be done in a way that all the projects containing the listed words won't be loaded. This would give us the possibility to, for example, not load the projects containing 'Ad hoc' in their names.

 

We are aware that we might keep these projects 'invisible' using permissions, however, for operational purposes we believe that the project filtering capability would be much better.

 

Thank you very much.

 

Regards,

Jan Laznicka

Hi, this has been implemented in the 2020.3 release.

In the metadata loader, you can specify objects to be included or excluded according to a tag value.
