    Deployment on Tableau Server instance of TabPy

    Steven Myers

      We have a small group of devs that have been learning to use TabPy with our Desktop installations but are now ready to deploy some workbooks on Tableau Server. Is there a deployment guide explicitly for setting up TabPy on a Windows Server that our Tableau Server can utilize?

          Hi, Steven,

           

          Yes, there are. Depending on what version of Server you're running, the process will be slightly different.

          If you're in 2018.2, take a look at this: External Services Connection .
          If you've updated to 2019.1, and running TSM-based Server, this article will be of more utility: tsm security - Tableau .

           

          In the latter case, here's an outline of the server commands to get things started.:|
          tsm security vizql-extsvc-ssl enable  --connection-type "tabpy" --extsvc-host "<your Tableau server name or address>" --extsvc-port "<port number on which it is listening: 9004 is the default" --connect-timeout-ms "1500" --script-disabled "true"
          tsm configuration set -k vizqlserver.script.disabled -v true

           

          Hope this helps. If you need anything else, don't hesitate to ask.
