    How extract works on server?

    Kishore Rasuri

      I haven't found proper information on how extract works on the server. In my workbook i have a data source connected to sql server. I extracted about 10% of data from SQL Server by using filtered extract. It created a .tde file in my local. Now i published this workbook to the server and scheduled the full refresh.


      What happens to the .tde file that i have in my local computer. does it get exported to server?

      What happens when the full refresh happens? does it pull the full data from my sql server and save it in the tableau server?

      If i use a live connection to the SQL  Server do i still need to schedule data refresh?


      thanks in advance
