  • There is no cost to use the adapter. However, you will need licenses to Tableau and to Salesforce.
  • Can be distributed with your software, as long as Tableau is notified of these products (send an email to: licensing@tableau.com).
  • Tableau does not support programs created using the API.
  • Tableau does support and maintain the current and previous major version of the API. It is your responsibility to make sure you are using a supported version.
