    2018.1 includes the ability to rename workbooks from the Tableau Server UI. Why is this not also available in the REST API?

      We are trying to add renaming workbooks as part of some automation code we have developed. However, I ran into the stumbling block that although workbooks can be renamed from the Tableau Server UI (I understand this capability didn't always exist), this is not a capability that has been included in the REST API.

       

      If the GUI can do it, shouldn't the REST API also be able to do it? I looked at the documentation for the 2019 versions and this also seems to be missing there. Does Tableau have any plans to add this capability in the future?

       

      Thanks.
