      @Hi, I was trying to create a web data connector and get data from Rest api using tableau desktop. I am using this this tutorial https://onlinehelp.tableau.com/current/api/wdc/en-us/help.htm#WDC/wdc_tutorial_basic.htm%3FTocPath%3DWeb%2520Data%2520Co…  . I downloaded the web data connector sdk from https://github.com/tableau/webdataconnector and tried to connect to one of their sample web data connectors ie Yahoo! Stock Data (file named StockQuoteConnector_final.html) from tableau desktop and I keep getting this error :

      When I use the simulator provided in the sdk to check the wdc this is what I get:
