    How to manage a server data source and what is in it

    Richard Kalmeijer

      Hi,

       

      I am trying to leverage the Tableau server as a data source possibilities and I have some questions.

       

      • What is exactly part of the data source. My assumption is that all fields, hierarchies, groups, calculations are part of the data source
      • I think that sets and parameters are not part of the data source.

      Is this correct?

       

      2nd question if I want to update the definition of a group that exists in a server data source is the following procedure correct?

      • Create a local copy of the dat source
      • Change the field.
      • Publish the local copy of the data source to the tableau server and as such overwrite the existing one?
