    Get view ID of custom view from Alteryx

    Jie Hong Lim



      I would like to pull dashboard image of a custom view from Alteryx with using API. In order to do so, I need view id of the custom view. I am able to get the view id of the original view. However, how can i get view id of a custom view?


      Here is the place that i refer to when i pull the dashboard image of an original view.

          Hello Jie,


          Based on your request. I believe it is encapsulated by the following Tableau Idea: https://community.tableau.com/ideas/6288


          Which is requesting ability to track traffic to custom views on Tableau Server. As Matt Coles points out in the idea the access to the customer views can be captured via the HTTPD logs currently. But they are not retained for long do to the size the table can get and are only held for 7 days. I am not super familiar with the Alteryx program itself, so I am not sure if you would be able to use this to pull the custom dashaboard image from the view as you desired.


          Hope this helps!
