    Can Tableau call a web service?

    Dan Gerena

      Does Tableau have the ability to call a web service?  Maybe send an HTTP “post” or “get”?  Write a value to a database table (versus read values)?

       

      Where I am going with this is that there may be times when our team or even our internal users may want to run a particular load process “on demand” in order to refresh the data.  This would be in addition to the normal scheduled load processes.  Placing a button on the dashboard that calls a web service, an http post, or inserts a value into a table are all ways that I have triggered load processes in the past.  I am just curious which of these, if any, Tableau may support.
