you have a couple options.
1. You can run the refreshextract synchronous which I think waits until it's done before proceeding. tabcmd Commands
2. You can poll the internal Postgres db to see the status of the extract and create a while loop until it's done. If don't have this enabled yet, then see the data dictionary and Workgroup DatabaseData Dictionary and enable the readonly password. Collect Data with the Tableau Server Repository . I always forget what to look for, I think we look at the finish_code on the backgrounder view.
Thanks Jeff! I will try these.
I used synchronous on the refreshextract. Looks like it worked great. Thanks again Jeff.
