The following video is demonstrating how you can connect Tableau to a REST API – LIVE – by making use of a 3rd party software (which needs to be licensed!). It is called Custom Connector SDK from Progress. It’s an SDK which you can think of as a framework which you can adjust to your REST API. Before I’m going to show how to leverage OpenAcess together with Tableau. I’m going to explain how the architectural flow looks like. The demo will then leverage a REST API which contains stock data.
