    RestAPI's and XML

    Adarsh Iyer

      Hello Everyone,


      Below is my requirement with the Data extract which i need for tableau.

      1.) I need to create a .tde file,

      2.) I have web methods written in Rest, which gets the data in XML format from our Web Server located in London

      3.) Now, Can i create a .tde File using this XML data directly? or need to push this data into a SQL or Oracle Database create table and then use it with tableau?

      4.) I came across the Web Data Connector, but confused on how to implement this.


      Any suggestion or guidance would be much appreciated. I need this to be implemented to have less manual intervention to update my data regularly and also cost (not to spend on SQL server).


      Thank you,
