Pull Dashboard Image from Tableau Server

I am trying to accomplish this for Tableau 10.3. Do you have an example?

Hi @bstephenf,

 

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 recommend familiarizing yourself with Tableau API Reference. I have zero experience with API's but was able to get the hang of it after watching this YouTube Video.

 

Hope this helps!

 

Ian

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.

@mridenour , 

 

Your workflow looks impressive! Can you share a sample workflow? I am on 2020.4.3 Tableau Server.

Thank you

Hi Ian @IJReed 

 

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. 

 

Thank you for your help!

Jovia
