Tableau Hyper Export

Export datasets to Tableau with Hyper format.

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
  • Extract a DSS dataset compatible with Tableau Hyper format
