Publish to Tableau Server Tool

Use the Publish to Tableau Server tool to publish an Alteryx data stream as either a Tableau Hyper (*.hyper) or TDE (*.tde) file. Tableau Online or Tableau Server (10.5+) is required to use this tool.

This macro is not automatically installed with Alteryx Designer. To use this macro, download it from the Alteryx Analytics Gallery.

After publishing an Alteryx data stream as a Tableau Hyper (*.hyper) file, the file may incorrectly display with a TDE (*.tde) extension. The data source is actually a *.hyper file. You can verify this by downloading and extracting the *.tdsx zip file and viewing the *.hyper file in Data > Extracts.

Blobs and spatial objects cannot be written to Tableau data sources, and are excluded. The input must contain at least one column that contains strings, numbers, or dates.
