I haven't personally used this tool. But you should know that depending on what you're looking to do, there may be options for you to build it yourself using either tabcmd publish or rest api publish.
tabcmd: tabcmd Commands
Thanks Jeff for quick reply.
Our environment - Tableau 10.3 server using AWS S3 environment.
What I would like know, how in industry customers are promoting tableau dashboards reading data from AWS S3 that requires minimal manual work and most part can be automated.
I see few options, (2 you have listed)
- Tabcmd Scripts
- REST API
- Enterprise Deployment tool by InterWorks (3rd party software tool but with separate cost)
I’m part Tableau Admin group and Business Intelligence group relies on us for the stability of the environment. One of the key factor of the stability is to make sure we are promoting assets to production server are accurate, stable. Currently all this process is manual and time consuming specially based on the size of the data extracts and it takes from 45 minutes to few hours.
In short, my goal is to understand what automation techniques people have used to promote Tableau asset using Amazon S3 environment. Would like to understand how they did that and their success story.
Also, if you have any white papers on this topic that you can share would be great as well.
