    Generate Tableau visualization PDF from a backend application


      What is the preferred way to generate/export Tableau visualization as a PDF from a backend java application using Tableau server 10?

      My requirement is to be able to generate a batch of PDFs from the visualization with different filter parameters from a backend application. We are planning to embed Tableau visualizations within a custom web application.
      I've tried with appending .pdf at the end of the Tableau visualization URL, this gives the PDF but have to pass some request headers including Cookie workgroup_session_id(hardcoded from user's browser session) to Tableau server. However, the backend application that makes this .pdf URL request won't be able to get the user's session cookie from the browser because the backend application is on a different domain than the tableau server.
