We have a Tableau Data Extract (1.3GB) whose source is a
custom SQL Query. When we published this data source to Tableau Server as .tde, we have created folders and
grouped Dimensions and also there are many calculated fields.
Question : Now we want to Add a New column and group it into
an existing folder in tableau data extract.
What’s the best way to do this?
Pain is part 3. ( How to avoid this step and keep the folder structure intact)
Any easiest way?
I suggest creating the data source and then replacing the old one with the new one. See this thread for reference: - How to Replace Data Source while retaining parameters and calculated fields
