Alteryx Tools Used to Connect
Data Connection Manager
The Tableau tools version 1.2.0 and later support Data Connection Manager for an easier and a safer storage of your credentials. Create a connection to Tableau and easily reuse the stored credentials in workflows that include the Tableau tools. Alteryx Server requires stored credentials to successfully run the published workflows.
Enable AMP Engine
Make sure you have the AMP engine enabled for the workflows which contain the Tableau tools version 1.2.0 and later.
Tableau doesn’t support single sign-on or multi-factor authentication. Only sign in using username and password or personal access tokens is supported. Personal access tokens are long-lived authentication tokens that allow you to run automation with Tableau REST APIs without requiring hard-coded credentials or interactive login.
You can only search in full names, so you need to provide 'datasource name' instead of just 'name'.
Since Designer version 2021.2, text fields read in .hyper files as V_WString with the max size to avoid data loss. To work around, you can use the Auto Field or Select tool before writing the data to any other format.
