one line api?

7 - Meteor

I'd like to make a Tableau url action run an Alteryx app in the gallery. I know I can open the app using the url. Can I also pass question answers and start the app running with just a url? It looks to be getting over my head and requiring the url to run a javascript to do all the oauth stuff. am I right?


Or...can I get everything needed to start the app running in a single url


Hi @hroderick,


you can not call the API only by "calling" the API endpoint. You definitely need to do the authentication as well and pass the values for authentication and to answer your App questions with a post request.


This will be some kind of code, which can be done e.g. in JavaScript.

A sample for JavaScript can be found here:


Best regards,

Thanks David!
