Livello di assistenza

Linguaggi di programmazione
JavaScript, HTML

Supported By: Tableau Server and Desktop: at least 10.1, and Tableau Cloud

You can use a web data connector to connect to data that is accessible over HTTP and that doesn't already have a connector. A web data connector is an HTML file that includes JavaScript code. You can create your own web data connector or use one that has been created by someone else. The web data connector must be hosted on a web server running locally on your computer, on a web server in your domain, or on a third-party web server.
