I was wondering if it is possible to execute a workflow from the gallery api from a tableau workbook on a server. What I am wanting to do is have an action in the workbook that would pass parameters to the api and return data to the tableau server. Tableau has the option to pass a url action, but after reading the gallery api documentation I wasn't sure how to make that work. Would using the web data connector be a better option?
Tableau Have a roadmap to release its Extensions feature where we should be able to create an Extension that will run Gallery App / Workflow. Just waiting for tableau to officially release the extensions Piece so we can start using it .
The WDC for Tableau Tool allows you to run an alteryx workflow by refreshing a Data Source in Tableau.
Otherwise you could run a workflow via the api from a command, but you would need to put in a fair amount of JS to write the api mechanism. there is an example (node.js) call included in the api docs on your alteryx server though to assist with that.
