    How to download an extracts tds without the extract

    Graham Macleod

      Previously, it was possible to download an extracts tds without including the extract like so

       

      https://tableausite.com/t/SiteName/datasources/DataSourceName.tds?no_extract=true

       

      After upgrading to 9.1.2 from 9.0.4, we discovered this no longer works. I raised a support case with Tableau and they have advised me that the URL suffix has now changed from ?no_extract=true to ?noExtract=true.

       

      They also specified that the capital "E" is necessary.

       

      I hope this is of some use to others.

       

      I would point out that accessing the https://tableausite.com/auth.xml page does specify the old format.

       

      Not sure if this also affects 9.1.0 and 9.1.1. Perhaps someone else can confirm that?
