    Linking Tableau to data using restful API

    Fred Tran

      Hi everyone,

       

      I'm pretty new to Javascript and JSON. The situation is there is an RESTful API made to be used which primary purpose is to generate reports (in .xml or .csv), I have been given an API token in order to use this API.

       

      My question is: can I somehow use this to link the data generated by these reports to Tableau so the data is ready to be visualised in an automated way? I have looked online and there are suggestions to use the JSON web data connector? How does this work?

       

      Many thanks in advance.
