Upgrading from tde to hyper

Meteoroid

Hello.

 

We currently are using the Output tool to create tde files on the Tableau server but we want to start using the new hyper format. When we change our workflow to use the Hyper Extract format, will it overwrite the existing tde or will it create new data sources on Tableau?

Are you creating the files locally or on Tableau Server?

 

If you are creating them locally then it will create new versions of the files and you will have to replace the .tde datasource with the .hyper file in Tableau as per this post: https://onlinehelp.tableau.com/current/pro/desktop/en-us/connect_basic_replace.htm

We're creating them locally and then publishing them to the server. Is there a way to create them directly on the server?

Yes there is a tool available in the gallery called 'Publish to Tableau Server' it is available here...

The two latest versions of the tools will publish .hyper files to the server; I cannot be 100% sure that they will overwrite, but I believe they will providing you give the same name as the existing datasource you want to change.
