    Sharepoint source - Performance

    Anisha Nair

      We are trying to implement a solution which integrates Tableau with SharePoint. The SharePoint list
      might contain over 1 million records. Are there performance and/or extensibility issues for this approach instead of a SQL table?

       

      Please advise.

          To Tableau, a data source is a data source - Have you tried martialling a large SharePoint list like the one you're talking about before, however? I bet it'll be slow as the devil, even just the part where Tableau builds an extract of the SharePoint List -- not great for you user experience.

           

          In your shoes, I'd go directly after the database table rather than relying on SharePoint to grab the rows.
