Hi. I’ve used Tableau with Workfront data which I have manually exported from Workfront.
I’m looking at how to automate the updating of data from Workfront into Tableau Online.
There are no off-the-shelf connectors in Tableau for Workfront, and I’ve looked into building a Tableau Web Data Connector, but it’s a bit complex.
I’m now wondering if I could build it in Azuqua.
I’m pretty comfortable with getting data out of Workfront via Azuqua, and could create files with the data I need.
I was looking at the list of Tableau actions and it looks like ‘Upload Datasource’ or ‘Upload Workbook’ are the most likely ways of getting data into Tableau. I’m not sure how this works as a ‘refresh’ of an existing data source, or whether they are just created as brand new data sources and therefore not really a refresh because it would require reconfiguration in Tableau to use the data.
Hoping there are some Tableau & Azuqua experienced users who can let me know what is possible and how I should approach it.
