    Possibility to modify the structure of underlying data with Tableau's parameter

    Jakob Wimmer

      Hi,

       

      is it in some form possible to change the underlying data when changing a Tableau parameter's value within Tableau? I know that it's not possible directly, however, is there a possibility to trigger a Python script (taking the parameter as input) that runs on a data extract or a customer SQL query (storing the variable through pl/sql)?

      This would allow me to simply refresh the data extract within tableau to have the viz updated consdering the new parameter value. The reason I'm asking is that I need to add new rows to the table based on a parameter setting, which is only possible outside Tableau. Further it would allow full flexibility in general.

       

      Thanks!
