    Running a User Defined Function in Tableau

    steve riley

      Hi all,

       

      I was wondering if there is a way to run a UDF in Tableau that will 1) trigger code to run in Oracle and 2) write to or update tables in Oracle. I am not looking to allow users to update the database via an interface on a Tableau dashboard, which is what some hacks allow, but I need the UDF to connect to Oracle and trigger some Oracle functions to run. There are some questions similar to this scattered across the web, but I wanted to see if this functionality exists or if someone has come up with a clever hack that works with Oracle. Any information or answers people are willing to provide or share would be awesome, because if you are reading this you most likely have more experience with Tableau than I do.

       

      Thanks much,

       

      Steve
