assuming you have a Tableau Server: If you have the data in CSV format already, wouldn't it be much more easy to write a script downloading the CSV to your Tableau Server and connect Tableau directly to the CSV?
The same applies if you want to use it in Desktop: Just download the file and connect to it directly.
If you are heading for Tableau Online neither optinon is available I'm afraid... But you could use "Sync Client" to push the updated CSV to Tableau Online then.
Does that make sense to you? Or did I miss a good reason to use a WDC here?
Thanks for the reply.
In order to get the csv I need to first login to the vendor tool.. enter my credentials and then it downloads the csv.
I am not sure if this could be taken care by scripting.
Also I am not aware of what exactly sync client does.
In case you have any sample script that could be shred it will be of great help.
Ah, got it... Does the vendor tool have a REST API? It sounds like you would have to log in to some kind of portal and download manually. This can't be done via WDC (as far as I know). A WDC needs some kind of API
How can I check that whether the tool has Rest API?
I'm afraid you would either have to work yourself through the tool's documentation or ask the people providing the tool
