    Retrieve a data source description (about) using the Tableau Server Client

    Richard Sharp

      I am currently using the Tableau Server Client to retrieve a lot of useful information on Tableau data sources. However one thing I'm looking for is the information entered into the data source "about" field.

       

       

      I notice that this value is retrieved when using the REST API /api/api-version/sites/site-id/datasources/datasource-id and the value is returned in the attribute "description"

       

      However when I execute the following code

      and I inspect the values of datasource, there is no value for the description.

       

      Can I find this value using the TSC or do I need to create a routine that will execute the REST API myself?
