    TDE API

    Simon Hessey

      I've been using the tableau extract TDE API successfully how it seems to be lacking in the options to create hierarchy, sets, group.

       

      I was hoping I could generate the TDE file as per what the Desktop product does within our production system via C++.

       

      Will this be supported in the future?

          Simon,

          connect to your Extract with the desktop product and set up your hierarchies, etc; then save the datasource (not the workbook).  Open up the datasource .tds file with your favorite text / XML editor and it should be aparent how to go about generating the proper .tds file to go with your extract .tde file, so as to get hiearchies, etc.
