    How to refresh datasource on Tableau Server, from a csv file on Tableau Server ?

    Iulian Olteanu

      Hello dear community,

       

      Our current intention is to have csv files on the Tableau Server machine.

      When these files are overwritten then the datasource should be updated - the datasource is an extract.

       

      I tried using tableau refreshextract, but I get ther following error: TSrefresh.jpg

      This works if you use Tableau Desktop, of course, but it is not an option in our current setup.

       

      Are there any other options on how to achieve this ? - Which do not involve Tableau Desktop.

       

      Many thanks in advance.

       

      P.S. The contents of the config file

      server=https://SERVERNAME

      username=USERNAME

      password=PASSWORD

      site=SITEID

      project=PROJECT_NAME

      datasource=DATASOURCE_NAME

      original-file=LOCAL_PATH_TO_UPDATED_CSV
