    How can I create a Tableau connector for my service?

    Trevor Dixon

      First, by way of disclaimer, I must admit that I'm not an experienced Tableau user, so keep that in mind as you judge me and respond!

       

      I run a service that collects data for customers. I'd love to give customers a way to easily pull their data into Tableau. Can I create a connector for Tableau that can help a user login and pull the data they want? Is OData a good option (or my only option)? Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems OData would require that they download ALL the data they're interested in upfront. I'd prefer to be able to create my own connector and control when to go back to the server for more data.

       

      Thank you,

      Trevor
