I have a Workbook I've created in Tableau Desktop that uses an Extract instead of a Live connection, because the SQL data source is huge and very slow when working on it. My question is because desktop is dealing with an extracted dataset, when I publish this workbook to Tableau Online do I just set the datasource as an extract, embed credentials, and then get it scheduled in Tableau Bridge?
Currently I have a couple of Workbooks that use a live connection in desktop and then I publish using an extract and i just schedule the refresh in bridge and all is well. I don't know if my datasource in desktop is an extract if this all functions the same way. I'm pretty new to Tableau and I've searched for an answer, but I haven't seen it yet.
