    how to simulate dynamic parameter in tableau?

    Michal Krupicka

      hello

       

       

      Tableau currently does not support dynamic parameters - i.e. - let's say that i create a tableau parameter based on some value stored in the database, if the value in the database changes subsequently - the change will not propagate to the tableau parameter

      • Is there a workaround for this? - specifically - we’re using a filter to filter out some data based on the value (date) stored in the database, but when we change the date value in the database - the parameter/filter will not reflect the change in the database
      • Therefore it is required to manually alter the tableau parameter inside the designer which we would like to avoid
      • Is there a workaround or a different approach?
