    Tableau 8.1 REST API ???

    Nate Baker

      Hey - First post on here...


      I'm trying do do some scripting against an older Tableau version. Whats up with the documentation pre-Tableau 8.3? Was it not supported? I can't seem to find documentation anywhere. I tried locating the xml schema - it doesn't exist @ http://tableausoftware.com/api/ts-api-1.0.xsd  but 2.0+ does. It looks like it exists - Help!


      response on GET:

      <tsResponse xmlns="http://tableausoftware.com/api" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" version="1.0" xsi:schemaLocation="http://tableausoftware.com/api http://tableausoftware.com/api/ts-api-1.0.xsd">

      <error code="404003">

                <summary>Resource Not Found</summary>


                     Unknown resource '/1.0/auth/signin' specified in URI.






      response on POST when logging in:


                <tsRequest><credentials name="myuser" password="MyP@$$" /></tsRequest>


      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

      <tsResponse version="1.0" xmlns="http://tableausoftware.com/api" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://tableausoftware.com/api http://tableausoftware.com/api/ts-api-1.0.xsd">

        <error code="403001">


          <detail>Client signed in but failed to provide an authentication token in the request header. Signing client out.</detail>





      Thanks in advance!
