    Getting unable to create extract and ajax call failed on running a web data connecter in tableau desktop?

    kanika midha

      I have written a web data connector that uses wdc version 1.1.0 and my tableau desktop has version 9.1.1. The web data connector just makes a simple GET call through Ajax and gets json data and displays it. My web data connector works perfectly on the simulator(i use the old simulator since i am using wdc library 1.1.0) with CORS(cross origin plugin enabled for chrome). But when I try to run my web data connector within tableau, I get Ajax call failed.Unable to create extract. I am not able to understand why the call fails. I have even set up the allow-access-control headers in my code.Can someone point out how to correct this. I have attached the error that i get.

       

      Thanks
