    Updating multiple items using REST API

    Richard Chung

      Hi there,

       

      I was wondering if the REST APIs that Tableau provides would allow a user to submit updates for multiple users at the same time.  For example, the Tableau User web admin interface allows an admin to assign a group to multiple users simultaneously using the Action menu.  Is it possible to do something like that with the REST API? 

       

      Thanks in Advance,

      Rich

          Hi Richard

          If you are looking to complete a task where you are updating a multiple users, etc then you are going to have to perform that action multiple times.

          So, for instance there isn't an option to add a list of users to a group, so using the REST API, you will have to loop through the list of users you want to update, and send a request for each of them.

           

          Hope this helps
