I was able to find a few Tableau Community posts that I believe might prove useful in your investigation to the unexpected behavior.
I would attempt a few of the suggestions in the above links.
Hope this helps!
Thank you for the response. I looked into the links.
The second link is related to tableau server and I think that is not related in my case as my issue is with rest API.
In the first link, the response/suggestion was to restrict the number of columns which in my case may not be an option. I would like to understand why the sorting and extract creation is taking a lot of time in my case. I want to make sure our approach towards extract creation is correct.
Also, I would like to know if we can run the sorting/extract creation process in parallel.
In my case I’m not even using any joins. All the data is from one single table.
