    Automate data extracts Tableau Online using Linux Server?

    Christopher Carlson

      We currently have Tableau Desktop and share our dashboard through Tableau Online.

      We use MySQL and AWS - RDS for our DB's. Currently we can run a bash script on one of our local machines to automate refreshes. The problem is that we have to keep them on all the time. Is it possible to automate the refreshes using a Linux Server?

      Perhaps there's a better way to do this but the basic requirements are:

      1. Schedule automatic daily refreshes of data extracts published to Tableau Online.

      2. Be able to put the script on a non-windows/osx machine.
