I have a dashboard with extracts as my data source embedded in webpage. I have scheduled my extracts to refresh at a particular time but also want to allow user to refresh the extract at any given point of time.
I know it can be done for Live connections but not sure how extracts refresh can be handled on Button click of a web page. Is it even possible to refresh extracts using any API function?
There isn't any REST/JS API methods for refreshing extracts
There are a few undocumented ones discussed in this thread - refresh data using REST
If your datasource is a .tde file then you could possibly use the Python extract API, otherwise the only option might be to invoke the tabcmd methods via command line
