    Tableau Online Rest API update embedded data source default value

    Gil BI

      Hi,

       

      I'd like to update (or better yet - filter) an embedded data source in Tableau Server (or Online) without republishing the entire workbook all over again. The problem while using the Rest-API is the fact that I'm unsuccessful with accessing a data source unless it is published separately. Does someone know about a successful attempt to do so?

       

      I did consider downloading the workbook (as twbx) filter the data source and re-publish but I don't think I can program my way on a to add a filter on Tableau Desktop. An alternative is to keep the original twb file and "hack" the XML with python to add a filter to the Data Source, but I don't think it is recommended.
