    Tableau Server Client API - Python --> how to trigger an incremental refresh?

    Alessandro Lollo

      Hi all,


      we're currently using Tableau Server 10.5.

      We have implemented an ETL process that works as follow:

      1. Download data from a website
      2. Populate a datamart on MySQL
      3. Refresh Tableau Server datasource extract using Tableau Server Client Python API


      With regards to the last point, we ended up triggering a full refresh via API following examples published here.

      Fact tables in our datamart have a timestamp field which we would like to use to perform incremental refresh.


      Looking at the API specification we did not find any suitable information regarding incremental refresh.

      Any suggestion on how to achieve this?


      Thank you,
