Create custom scripts that pull your data into Tableau data extracts.
Use Cases: Connect to data sources with the Extract API and write the data into extract files (in the .hyper file format for Tableau 10.5 and later).
Benefits: If you can connect to your data, you can use the Extract API to create data extracts that improve performance and provide offline access. If you have data sources that are not currently supported, you can use the Extract API to get the data into Tableau. Runs on MacOS, Windows, and Linux systems, and your choice of programming language (C, C++, Java, and Python).
