    Tableau Datastource Refresh on Live Connection

    Prakasam vajiravel

      Hello Tech guys,

      I have a genuine and simple ask from one of our business user. He publish the data source into tableau server as a live connection and wanted to create/schedule extract refresh on this DS.


      If it is a packaged workbook, As a admin, I would be able to setup schedule refresh on server, perhaps if it is a live connection, I wouldn't be able to setup a schedule refresh on the server.  However, user cannot publish as a packaged workbook as it is resource intensive to generate extract on his local machine.


      Is there any automated way when he publish the data source as a live connection and as a admin be able to create refresh without much manual intervention.
