Tableau's API runs on Linux, enabling developers to directly create files that can be used in the tool itself.

  • How it works

    The API works with C/C++, Java, and Python. Developers can use this API to generate TDE files from on-premise software and software-as-a-service. This API lets you systematically get data into Tableau when there is not a native connector to the data source you are using.

  • TDE Files

    Tableau can connect natively to Tableau Data Extracts (TDE) which can be used in Tableau Desktop or published to Tableau Server and Tableau Online through the same API.

When we took the first dashboard done in Tableau to the first meeting with the executives, some were so surprised, that the reaction was mostly silence. One of the executives said, 'I always asked for that in the BI area and finally they managed to do it.'
