    Scripting Copy, Data Source Filter Changes and Deployments

    Logan Rott

      Hi! I'm building a solution to do the below and looking for guidance on the best tools to assist me (Document API + base REST? partially leverage some utility?). My forum and web searches so far yielded similar solutions but not quite as far as I need them to go.


      1. Create N copies of a master twb workbook

      2. For each workbook, change the data source filter to a different value based on a lookup table

      3. Deploy each filtered workbook into its corresponding project


      I'm scripting this in Python. I'm trying to keep this flexible also in case we have to incorporate more than just a filter change down the road (e.g. swap data sources, edit calculations, delete views, etc.)
