    Accessing Tableau Metadata from outside of Tableau


      Has anyone had any luck loading the Tableau Data Source metadata from the TDE files into a metadata repository?  We already capture all the metadata from our ETL jobs, Teradata Data Warehouse structures, and Business Objects Universes into a central repository (Oracle Database) which is used to produce data dictionaries and lookups for column and field definitions. We want to be able to load the Tableau metadata into this repository so we can capture the BI metadata that is created in Tableau (calculated fields, derived fields, etc).  We were told that the TDE's are XML based and were wondering if anyone has had success loading this metadata into a repository or another tool where the metadata can be viewed.
