To publish a workbook and have it accessible in Google Cloud will require you to have Tableau Server:
Working with Tableau Server on the Google Cloud Platform requires the following:
- A Google account. If you don't already have one, sign up for a new account.
- The Tableau Server installer. For information, see the Tableau Server Trial Download page.
- A Tableau Server license. You'll need a product key, or you can install the trial download.
- Microsoft Remote Desktop (RDP) installed on your computer. You use Remote Desktop to sign in to the VM that is hosting Tableau Server. Remote Desktop is installed on Windows. If you use a Mac, you can install Remote Desktop as a client from the Microsoft Download Center.
Save it as a packaged workbook (.twbx)? Then the user only needs Tableau Reader to view it. Helluva lot cheaper than Tableau Server if you only need basic report distribution!
If the data is not private or confidential, you could publish it on Tableau Public, which is free.
