    Tableau Webservices

      Hi, I am currently using Tableau Desktop and Tableau Server  both, and trying to automate the process of transferring the chart data automatically to tableau sever from tableau desktop and then to a normal browser using basic JAVA HTML code.I am able to do it manually but I need to know if I can automate the process using web-services to call the data and to display the chart directly in a browser.

          Hi Soumava -

           

          Tableau Desktop allows you to publish a Tableau Viz directly to Tableau Server. Because of that, I'm not exactly sure what you mean by:

           

          "...trying to automate the process of transferring the chart data to Tableau Server from Tableau Desktop".

           

          There's no need for this. Can you explain a little bit more?

           

          If your goal is simply to programtically show a tableau vizualization pubished to Tableau server inside an HTML page, you can do so with Tableau's JavaScript API. We don't have a web service to do this:

           

          JavaScript API

          JavaScript API | Tableau Software

           

          Hope this helps!
