    Refresh extract of on-premises data in Tableau Online

    Ashika Shetty

      Hi,

       

      I have a tableau dashboard with the extracted excel data source published on Tableau Online and I am able to automate the refresh tasks via Tableau data extract command line utility and Tableau Bridge but I am not able to achieve this via tabcmd commands.

       

      Please help me in understanding the below queries that I have:

       

      • Can we not run tabcmd commands to auto refresh the on-premises data in Tableau online
      • If the end user doesn't own the Tableau Desktop but have the administrator/publisher access on Tableau Online/Tableau Server, is there a way the user can automate the tasks without having Tableau Desktop installed in their machine as Tableau data extract command line utility and Tableau Bridge comes along with Tableau Desktop. Is there any alternate solution?

       

      Note: We don't have the fixed date or time when the files will get placed to refresh the data extracts. So we won't be able to set a scheduler on Tableau

       

       

      Thanks,
      Ashika
