Tableau Extension API – Write Back – Source Code

Kommentare : 3

Due to the positive feedback of the write back extension from the video below I want to equip IT FOLKS with the right tools to setup the same environment on their machines for POC kind of situations as fast as possible. Please be aware of the fact that I might be referencing absolute paths in the code which means in order to be up and running as fast as possible you might want to copy the code to the exact same folder I did (C:)

Download and unzip this content: writeBackV1.3(incl XAMPP and MySQL DB)

  1. Install – tableau-setup-std-main.18.0208.2310-x64.exe
  2. Copy “WriteBackV1.3.trex” into “Extensions” within your “MyDocuments” folder
  3. Extract xampp directly into your C: drive
  4. Start XAMPP – Apache MySql and Tomcat
  5. Start the “05 Start this BAT – Start Tableau Main (with Extension in Debug Mode).bat”
  6. Open this workbook in exactly the instance from above – Extension API – Write Back v1.3.twbx
  7. Open Chromium (exact same version as provided in the pre-release webpage) – To Remote Debug your Extension
