i was checking few tableau blogs and came across some information related to this.Tableau experts let me know if this makes sense to give a try.
1)login to tableau server from my local machine using
tabcmd login -s http://<host>:<port> -u <username> -p <password>
2) Below export exports the data used in the viz to a csv and places it in local directory
tabcmd export "/views/Wow/SummaryReports" -f "progressReport.csv"
3)By using some scripting i can read data from csv and insert into my target database.
let me know if anyone of you tried this and did it work?
We have the feasibility to pass parameter as filters to run view and export data for that particular filter.
proposed this to my client,awaiting a positive reply
Out of curiosity, what's the value in extracting the data from a Tableau workbook? Tableau has been connected to a 'source' in the first place, why not extract into the new system directly from that source?
