Extract API 2.0 can create .hyper extracts - but you'll want to use the REST API to publish them.
Previous versions of the Tableau SDK could create and publish .tde files, but are not able to create or publish .hyper files because it does not recognize the file format.
Starting in Tableau 10.5, you can use the Tableau Extract API 2.0 to create .hyper extracts.
For other tasks that you previously performed using the Tableau SDK, such as publishing extracts, you can use the Tableau Server REST API or the Tableau Server Client (Python) library instead. You can also use the Tableau Server REST API to refresh extracts.
- For more information about the Tableau Extract API, see the Extract API 2.0 documentation.
- For more information about the .hyper format, see Extract Upgrade to .hyper Format.
- For more information about the Tableau Server REST API or the Tableau Server Client (Python) library, see the Tableau Server REST API documentation or the Tableau Server Client (Python) library documentation.
If you're using Tableau 10.4 and earlier, you can continue to use the Tableau SDK to create .tde extracts and publish those extracts to Tableau Server. For more information, see the Tableau SDK documentation.
Both the SDK and the Extract API 2.0 support Windows, Linux, and the Mac, using C, C++, Java, and Python.
