    Automate Tableau Server Installation using powershell commands in User Data

    Rohit Maheshwari

      Hi Guys,


      I am new to Tableau. Working with one of our clients. We have the tableau server in AWS and to automate it. I want to use powershell commands in user data.


      Can anyone please help me with that?


      Till now I have just the below scripts of powershell.


      I am missing last bit which can install the tableau.exe setup by passing data.


      We use terraform as Infrastructuire deployment tool. So I don't want to use already available Cloud Formation template.


      Invoke-WebRequest https://tableau-quickstart.s3.amazonaws.com/Setup-Server-x64.exe -OutFile c:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\tableau.exe

      $script = New-Object Net.WebClient

      $script | Get-Member


      iwr https://chocolatey.org/install.ps1 -UseBasicParsing | iex

      choco upgrade chocolatey

      choco install -y nano

      choco install -y python2

      python -m pip install --upgrade pip



      NOTE: Please ignore the python installation part.
