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.
