    Accepting parameters from another Application and Applying to Tableau Reports

    Amit Kumar

      I'm working on a project where the parameters are being provided from one application to Tableau and have it pull the filtered content from a database based on these parameters and then display it on the report.

      The way it has been implemented currently is that after Tableau receives the parameters:

      1. It first populates the report with data pulled with a default set of parameters and then

      2. Loads the reports with data pulled with the current set of parameters

      This has lead to twice the report execution and load time with step 1 above being unnecessary but as per my Tableau team getting rid of step 1 is technically infeasible.

      I'm writing to this forum to understand if we have a potential solution in this case and how to proceed with it. Any help is appreciated.
