I'm working with an ETL tool that can write .tde files as an output. Works great in the desktop environment, but I can't quite get the pieces to fit together in the server environment in the way that I need. Here is what I have done and observed:
1) Created the .tde.
2) Pushed the tde to myTableauServer\extracts
3) Open up desktop. Point it to myTableauServer\extracts\myTde.tde
4) Publish to server.
5) Schedule the ETL to write a new build of the .tde at 1:00 am.
6) Come in the next morning. Observe a .tde with a timestamp of 1:45 am. Load my viz in Tableau Server. See old data. Hitting refresh has no effect. I do not get an option to schedule a refresh of the extract in Server. When I publish from desktop, I do not get an option to schedule a refresh.
What am I doing wrong? If this a situation I have to handle via tabcmd?
