We are trying to automate a daily email that would pull in an image of the current Tableau Dashboard.
I understand there is the Tableau Subscription models, but we need to be able to provide other information in the email, that can only be done with Alteryx.
We are trying using both the Download tool, and the Image tool, as I know you can enter the Tableau URL ending in .png to open the web page as an image. We have had some success with images from Google, but have not had success with pulling images from our Tableau Server.
Attached is a workbook that pulls the first 30 full image views, meaning it will pull the first 30 tabs you have posted to Tableau Server/Online for each workbook.
You can change the number of views you want to download by changing the value in the first formula tool from "....pageSize=30..." to "...pageSize=300...". The maximum number of views you can pull is 1,000. Beyond 1,000 you will have to change the page number in the first formula tool from "1" to "2", or "3" etc.
I have managed to create a workflow with the help of the Alteryx team that pulls down images from Tableau using Rest APIs, filters those images, then adds those images to a PowerPoint deck. Each version of Tableau has a different Rest API version, so it's important to know that version when constructing the API endpoints in the formula tool prior to downloading.
How to also pull the project name in the workflow you posted? I checked the project field in the last select tool. But the output for the project column is all blank. And where are all the images downloaded to? I got 120 records returned. But can't identify the folder that stored these 120 images.
