I used python scripting to do a series of complex queries from 3 different RDS's, and then exported the data into a CSV file. I am now trying to find a way to automate publishing a dashboard that uses this data into Tableau server on a weekly basis, such that when I run my python code, it will generate new data, and subsequently, the dashboard on Tableau server will be updated as well.
I already tried several options, including using the full UNC path to the csv file as the live connection, but Tableau server had trouble reading this path. Now I'm thinking about just creating a powershell script that can be run weekly that calls the python script to create the dataset and then refreshes tableau desktop, then finally re-publishes/overwrites the dashboard to tableau server.
Any ideas on how to proceed with this?
