My client was asking me to find a way to publish the Alteryx result sets into Tableau server from where i could use the published data source which in turn Users could build the visualization on their own in the tableau server directly . I was able to achieve this solution using Event Run command Options
But it is not more convenient for my user as password is getting exposed as a parameter in "tabcmd" so am trying to make use of "Publish to Tableau Server tool" it dint work for me especially Saved Connections are not populating any information and also not accepting any inputs from my end as well.
Alteryx Version : Alteryx Designer Core 2019.2 ( Licensed Version ) Tableau Version : Tableau 2018.3
Steps Followed :
1) Downloaded the Publish to Tableau Server Install v2.0.0 – Alteryx version 2018.2 and Tableau Server 10.5 and newer from the Alteryx gallery. It did ask me for Admin privileges to install it but i ignored that message and went ahead for installation and nothing happens.
That does seem strange as a 404 error typically just means that your Tableau Server can't be seen at all regardless of authentication, etc. Have you tried dragging out a fresh Publish to Tableau Server tool in a new workflow and trying to connect? As a troubleshooting step I'd say to try not using your existing saved connection in the tool - just put in a username, password, Server URL and site name (I'd also encourage trying to put in no site name and connect to the default site to see those results).
If nothing seems to work or make a difference I encourage you to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to resolve the issue and/or get any potential defects logged so they can be fixed. Please report back to this thread so others can see what you've discovered!
An issue I find with the Publish to Tableau Server tool is the loss of Hyper file definition. It overwrites custom formats, data source level calculated fields, etc. The only workaround I have found for this to date is using tabcmd and Run Command in Alteryx. This article covers how to publish to Tableau Server from Alteryx and maintain the hyper file definition. Happy to hear alternatives that are simpler than Run Command.
