No, Tableau Public does not allow live connections. Everything you connect to - must be extracted.
Republishing workbook is the only option here however, if I remember correctly, there were some tools/scripts that could automate that part of the process (local extract refresh + publish).
Thanks, that's quite a bumper.
The upcoming JSON connection is also the same, it is just a pity there are no live options for them.
