    Web data connector status notification

    Johan de Beurs

      Hi all,

       

      Does anyone know a way to print the status of a web data connector to the Tableau refresh window?  e.g., when I refresh an extract I normally see messages like "[x] rows retrieved so far" and "[x] elapsed time" and so on.  I'd love to be able to create an entry in the WDC file (e.g., using something like tableau.log(connectorStatus)) to print the current status of a connector.  I have a couple which can take ~5mins to refresh depending on the data volume (Mechanism here is typically an async request and then poll the API every so often until the request is fulfilled) and it would be great to know whether they are working through the request successfully.

       

      Thanks,

      Johan
