    Only Desktop version able to generate tde?

    zijing guo

      Hello Community,

      I have a question regarding how to automate the process of generating a tde file and upload it to the server.

      So Right now I have a tableau server and a csv file that need to be uploaded to the server on a daily basis.

      I have to generate a tde file base on the csv file and then upload it to the server. So csv -> generate tde -> load to server.

      My question is:

      1. What is the difference between Schedule Data Extract and generate a tde file? I guess schedule Data Extract is not equal to generate a tde?

      2. How can I generate the tde file through the cmd line utilities rather then manually click on around on the desktop?

      3.Is that true that only desktop version able to generate Extract file? base on the post: Tableau Data Extract Command-Line Utility

      4. What would the best approach to automate this process?


      Please let me know if anything is not clear.

      Any answer would be appreciated!
