Tableau Snap Pack (Deprecated)

On this Page

Tableau provides data visualization on business intelligence.

To use the Tableau Writer Snap, the tabcmd executable and Tableau TDE library files must be visible through the system PATH variable defined on each of the Windows-based Snaplex nodes on which Tableau Snaps may be executed. The paths to these files must be defined in the system PATH in DOS 8.3 notation. To guarantee that all necessary binaries are installed, we recommend a full installation of Tableau Server on each node. Standalone installations of tabcmd and the TDE library files may work, assuming that the above prerequisites are satisfied.

If you are running SnapLogic as a Windows service, any modifications to the system PATH variable that impact resolution of the SnapLogic or Tableau will require a reinstallation of the service.

Use Snaps in this Snap Pack to:

  • Write data files to Tableau
  • Format tabular document data into Tableau data format (TDE extension) and writes this formatted data to a binary output view.

Supported Version

This Snap Pack is tested against v10.2.
