    Merge tableau data extract locally

    Ken FF

      HI everybody,

       

      I wonder in Tableau 10.5, is it possible to merge (append) 2 tableau data extracts locally in the server? When I say "locally", it means I can combine 2 tdes file (or hyper) at local server and using publishdatasource command line to replace target data source.

      The reason I'm asking for it because I can avoid publishdatasource --append option which sometimes causing timeout issue. The worst thing is even tabcmd throw timeout error, the actual process is still going and hence may result in duplicate data.

      In short, can I download 2 Tableau data sources, merge them to single tde and publish back to server ?

      P.S: incremental refresh is not feasible in my scenario.

      Thank you!
