Tableau 8 Write (Deprecated)

On this Page

Snap type:



This Snap writes data files to a Tableau server.
NoteThis Snap Pack has been implemented against the 8.1.2 version of Tableau server and verified with 8.2. To use this Snap, the Tableau libraries must be available on the Windows-based Snaplex nodes. This means that the Tableau server must have been installed on the server and be available to the Snaplex process. Where the Tableau server has not been installed, any attempted use of the Snap will cause exceptions to be thrown, error messages will be generated.



Support and limitations:Works in Ultra Pipelines.

This Snap uses account references created on the Accounts page of SnapLogic Manager to handle access to this endpoint. See Configuring Tableau Accounts (Deprecated) for information on setting up this type of account.

  • Execute only: Performs full execution of the Snap during Pipeline execution without generating preview data.
  • Disabled: Disables the Snap and all Snaps that are downstream from it.
