Tableau Extension API – Write Back

Kommentare : 10

LATEST VERSION OF THIS WRITE BACK EXTENSION => CLICK HERE


The video below is demonstrating how you could leverage Tableau’s Extension API to save a tremendous amount of time in your planning and forecasting processes. This is done by coding a Tableau Extension which is actually writing back data into your transactional database (e.g. CRM system) directly from within a Tableau Dashboard!

I’m looking forward to get your feedback on it!
Cheers,
TT

    Great stuff! Can you use this extension to write back to Hyperion?

    Thanks,

      Hey Mitchell,
      if Hyperion offers you with the ability to programmatically write data into cells – yes, absolutely!

      You’d then adjust the “php/writeToDb.php” file to write data into your backend of choice .

      Alternatively you could also adjust “MarksSelection.js” to not handover data to a PHP file via $.post(‘php/writeToDb.php’,{…}) at all. Instead you could use your programming language of choice.

      Cheers,
      Timo
