    Tableau Server REST API

    Jason Robbins

      I see the ability to return a list of data sources and datasource connections from Tableau Server via the REST API. But is there any way to query/access a list of the fields that are part of the data source? 

       

      Explaining from a different perspective....In the context of creating a 'single source of truth' within the organization, I'm trying to come up with a way to create an inventory/view of data sources, data elements, and the definition of that data so that individuals can quickly see what's available/accessible.  My thought was to access that data via the REST API and create a simple way for users to interact with the vetted data library. 

       

      Appreciate any insights/best practices around this topic.
