I see the ability to return a list of data sources and datasource connections from Tableau Server via the REST API. But is there any way to query/access a list of the fields that are part of the data source?
Explaining from a different perspective....In the context of creating a 'single source of truth' within the organization, I'm trying to come up with a way to create an inventory/view of data sources, data elements, and the definition of that data so that individuals can quickly see what's available/accessible. My thought was to access that data via the REST API and create a simple way for users to interact with the vetted data library.
Appreciate any insights/best practices around this topic.
