Tableau Hyper Export plugin

Tableau is one of the leading data visualization tools and a Dataiku partner.

The recently released Hyper format deprecates former Tableau Extract API and Server SDK

This plugin offers the ability to export Dataiku data to Tableau with the Hyper format:

  • Export to a Hyper file for immediate open in Tableau Desktop
  • Directly upload a dataset to Tableau Server with the Hyper format

This plugin uses the regular export infrastructure of DSS, meaning you can export to Tableau:

  • Datasets
  • Prepared data
  • Results of SQL notebooks
  • Pandas dataframes from Jupyter
  • Dataset schemas
  • Machine learning results
  • ...

How to use

This plugin requires DSS 5.0.2 or higher.

The plugin requires the Tableau SDK to work. An automatic installation script is provided. When DSS prompts you, click on "Install now". Your server needs Internet access for this automatic installation procedure.
For DSS versions prior to 5.0.2 the automatic installation script won't work and you will need to follow a Manual installation procedure

The plugin provides two exporters, available in the standard "Export" dialog of DSS
