Tableau to Alteryx to Tableau

Before I work on design, I'm wondering if this is even possible...can I connect Alteryx and Tableau so that when a user enters a variable into Tableau, that variable is then passed to Alteryx, runs through the workflow/app, and the results are then published back to the dashboard? If it is possible and you have any tips on design, those would be appreciated as well.

 

Thanks!

Hi @richard_gardner,

You can do this by creating an app and publishing it to your server.  Then using the Web Data Connector in Tableau, you can call that app from your server, use the interface to send the app some user-chosen value, have the workflow run, then push the result to Tableau.

Check out the video at the bottom of this posting for more info:
