I am developing a Web application[C#] that integrates with the Rest API provided by Tableau 10 and displays all the views for a logged-in Tableau User. I am in the design phase. The application is designed to have a "Home Page" where the user lands. This page is supposed to have the thumbnails of all the Views that the user is eligible for.
I have a couple of questions on how to implement it.
1. What is the best way to have this implemented?
3. If I go by the option of storing the Thumbnails in the Web Server, how do I manage it? As in, how do I know that the thumbnails are up-to-date?
4. I see an API call that returns the image for a single "View" but I would like to know if there is a single call to download the thumbnails for all the views/workbooks?
Please clarify. Any help on the above would be very much appreciated. Thanks!
