    Introduction to the Rest API

    Carlos Albuquerque

      Hello everyone.

      I am transitioning from report development to actual tableau application development in my job.

      Based on our business requirements, we will need to implement some features through the Rest API.

      I have completed the pre-requisites in the server, and played with a few queries via Postman, but we now need to start implementing those methods in our own application.

      With that said, could anyone point to any reference material on how to get started with the REST API in an application? Questions I am trying to answer are, what files are needed to create? is there a specific folder in the development environment that the files should be hosted? is there a template for rest api configurations that we simply add our own snippets of queries, etc...


      I apologize if this is a very basic/trivial question.


      Thank you
