We are trying to integrate tableau with SSRS. The reason..16 row and 16 column limitation in tableau. Users want to have the ability to extract data comprising of 128 columns in excel from the tableau dashboard.
The dashboard in tableau is a heat map and is having six quick filters (Multiple value drop downs).
If a user has select a few values from the quick filters..where does tableau store those values?
How can I get those valves out side tableau server/desktop?
Because, we want to have the combination of selected values passed to SSRS, and that can generate an excel with 128 columns.
Thanks in advance.
Tableau does not "store" the values of Quick Filters anywhere. However, you can pass the value of any field in the view in your URL Action.See http://onlinehelp.tableau.com/current/pro/online/mac/en-us/help.htm#actions_url.html for more information.
