    Looking for where Workbook Descriptions are stored in Postgres?

    Gary Wood

      We have cobbled together a process that allows us to extract workbook/datasource details from Tableau's Postgres back end as  XML, then parse those files into a home-grown data dictionary for Tableau objects.

      A recent ask is to be able to add Tags and Descriptions from these objects.

      The tags are not a problem, as they are embedded in the XML.  However, having a problem finding out where a workbook description gets stashed after being added.


      We aren't a Postgres shop, so my delving into the tables underlying Tableau has been a bit stilted.  Does anyone know which Postgres object contains the Description details?  If you might have an example of how to join to it from the associated workbook, that would be fantastic.
