  • Dynamic Data Updates: Automatically update Tableau data sources when new data comes into your backend systems, ensuring that Tableau dashboards reflect the most current data.

    Example Workflow: Trigger a Pipedream workflow with a webhook when new data is added to a database; process and format the data within the workflow; use Tableau API to refresh the corresponding data source on Tableau Server or Tableau Online.

  • User Management Automation: Streamline user provisioning by automating the addition and removal of users to and from Tableau sites based on HR software triggers or internal databases.

    Example Workflow: Trigger a Pipedream workflow from a user management event in an app like BambooHR; use conditions within the workflow to determine if the user should be added or removed; utilize Tableau API to update the user list on the relevant Tableau site.

Authentication

Tableau uses OAuth authentication. When you connect your Tableau account, Pipedream will open a popup window where you can sign into Tableau and grant Pipedream permission to connect to your account. Pipedream securely stores and automatically refreshes the OAuth tokens so you can easily authenticate any Tableau API.

Pipedream requests the following authorization scopes when you connect your account:

OAuth Request Configurations:
