    Using Python Tableau Server Client (TSC) and REST API to change Workbook database credentials on Tableau Server 10?

    John Coleman

      Howdy,

       

      Our group needs an automated way to change the user ids and passwords of workbook database connections in the Tableau Server 10.4 environment.   After some research it appears the Python modules, Tableau Server Client (TSC) and REST API, might be able to accomplish this.

       

      Does anyone have experience with updating workbook database credentials on Tableau Server using this method or other similar methods?

       

      BTW,   We're using Tableau Server 10.4 on Windows 2012 R2.  Python 3.6 has been installed and API modules Tableau Server Client (TSC) and Tableau Document are installed. 

       

      Thanks for the advice

       

      John
