    Sharing a packaged workbook from the server on a shared server through Tabcmd

      Hi All


      I am wondering if someone has a good answer to this.


      I have multiple dashboards in a workbook on the Tableau server with a filter by the client name. I am looking at a way to  (using tabcmd preferrably)


      1) Extract the workbook as a packaged workbook and drop it onto a shared drive

      2) Have users within the company open the packaged workbook with reader thats on the shared folder.

      3) Filter to their client and extract the dashboards as pdf.


      I has created a Tabcmd script for a batch script to filter by the CIDs which is below. However realized this would mean a lot of work on my end and would be almost impossible. I am ok with downloading the whole packaged workbook and not splitting it up via filters.



      • "C:\Program Files\Tableau\Tableau Server\8.2\bin\tabcmd" login -s http://localhost -u ncash -p Padywack84 - Login
      • for /F "tokens=*" %%A in (4CIDS.txt) do "C:\Program Files\Tableau\Tableau Server\8.2\bin\tabcmd" - This is getting the txt file with the CIDs
      • get "http://localhost/views/PFX_MUD_SampleServerTest/SearchMarketerUsage?client_id=%%A" - The URL path of the report to get (don't forget to add http at the beginning and the filter criteria at the end)
-f "C:\Users\Naquiyah Cash\Desktop\Tableau workbooks\PFX Test\%%A.twbx" - The folder you want to drop the report into.


      Thanks guys
