Portals for Tableau New Feature Spotlight: Quick Populate Tableau Server Connection


Portals for Tableau New Feature Spotlight: Quick Populate Tableau Server Connection

The Portals for Tableau New Features series is designed to keep users up to date with all the latest features being added to InterWorks' embedded analytics solution, Portals for Tableau.

Please note that Portals for Tableau are now officially known as Curator by InterWorks. You can learn more at the official Curator website.

Portals for Tableau are created and maintained by lazy people. Many people that administer and use Portals for Tableau are also lazy people. This is not a bad thing. In fact, I would argue it’s dumb to do more work than is necessary. As a result, we like to build features that allow us to be even lazier.

Up until now, when you are connecting your portal to your Tableau Server, we’ve completely and unreasonably asked for the Server’s URL in one field and the site in another field. We’ve corrected that problem. You can now copy a link from your Tableau Server, paste it into a specific box, click a button and those fields are automatically populated for you. It’s almost as good as reading your mind to populate the fields for you, but we were too lazy to implement telepathy. Maybe one day.
