    Programmatically Export Crosstab

    Brian Coggon

      On Tableau server, there is a functionality to export data as crosstab.

      I would like to be able to programmatically access this functionality.

      The use case is to build a one-click action to:

      1. Export the data from the report (which is generated based on user-selected parameters)
      2. Write a script to load this data into a database (ex: Amazon RedShift)


      Since this is going to be heavily reliant on user’s parameter selection, I cannot use TabCmd to automate the export on a schedule.

      The idea is to provide a link to user on the dashboard to save this data, which will do the above mentioned 2 tasks.
