As Tableau has continued to open more APIs with their product releases, it would be great if these could be exposed via Alteryx tools.
One specifically I think would make a great tool would be the Tableau Document API (link) which allows for things like:
- Getting connection information from data sources and workbooks (Server Name, Username, Database Name, Authentication Type, Connection Type)
- Updating connection information in workbooks and data sources (Server Name, Username, Database Name)
- Getting Field information from data sources and workbooks (Get all fields in a data source, Get all fields in use by certain sheets in a workbook)
For those of us that use Alteryx to automate much of our Tableau work, having an easy tool to read and write this info (instead of writing python script) would be beneficial.
