    Add New column to Tableau Data Extract keeping Folder structure intact

    Prabhakar T


      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?


      1. Update custom sql, to add new column
      2. Then generate .tde
      3. Recreate all folder structure and calculated fields.
      4. Publish this to stage.


      Pain is part 3. ( How to avoid this step and keep the folder structure intact)

      Any easiest way?
