    Workbook Description and Usage Stats from Rest API

    Robert Hamm

      I am creating a front end angular application that will be used to list and easily view tableau workbooks. I currently need to get workbook descriptions and workbook hit counts (usage stats).


      I have looked at this post here (query Workbook description using REST API v.2.2 ) Where Chris Shin has indicated that description will be available in API 2.9 - when is this going to be released and will this new api version also show usage stats for workbooks?


      This is an urgent need for the project I am working on - if the update isn't soon I will have to track hits manually and set our own custom descriptions outside of tableau which isn't ideal since the data is already in tableau and should be pretty easily accessible with some simple changes to the rest api.
