Extensions API

With our Extensions API, developers can create dashboard extensions that enable customers to integrate and interact with data from other applications directly in Tableau.

Use Cases:

  • Create an extension that has write-back functionality, so users can modify data in a viz and have that change automatically update the source data in the data base or web application
  • Build custom viz and interactivity types such as a filter replacement with a custom interface and network diagram
  • Integrate 3rd party functionality inside the dashboard

Benefits:

  • Interact with data from other business applications directly in Tableau
  • Customize Tableau's Desktop environment for a specific team's workflow

Level of Support:  Tableau-supported once released
