    File download from MySQL database on server

    eraufars

      I just learned how to make URL-actions and a simple table of URLs that can be clicked to go to their web pages, and put such a table in my Tableau dashboard.

       

      Such as is mentioned here

      referring to here

       

      The joy of six: calculated fields - InterWorks UK - Tableau Software & Business Intelligence Consulting

       

      This is good and useful.

       

      I also would like to make some files downloadable from the database that my dashboard runs on. It connects to a MySQL database.

       

      Can download links to files in the database be put in a Tableau dashboard as well? It would be very nice to be able to include them with the data and figures.
