    Tableau -Salesforce connection - Hide Fields which are used in Joins(Meaning ID fields)

    mahesh reddy

      Hi --- We are joining many tables(objects from salesforce ) more than 10 TABLES. we are joining the tables by using ID on each tables. The Id fields which are being used in joins  cannot be hidden in extracted file with Hide option .

      My work Around Process to achieve this

      step 1: Published the Extract with ID fields on to server.

      step 2: then connected live to tableau server , Then I see the option to hide fields in workbook.

      STEP 3:Hided fields in workbook

      Step 4: then created extract after hiding the fields.


      There are some issues in above approach . Does anyone have suggestions on hiding the fields (mostly ID fields used in joins)
