Scripting using Tableau 9 – Javascript API and Rest API

With Tableau’s JavaScript API you can integrate Tableau visualizations into your own web applications. The API lets you tightly control your users’ interactions and combine functionality that otherwise couldn’t be combined. For example, you can code a single control that filters a group of marks, selects some of those marks, and presents their data for download.

With the Tableau Server REST API you can manage and change Tableau Server resources programmatically, via HTTP. The API gives you simple access to the functionality behind the data sources, projects, workbooks, site users, and sites on a Tableau server. You can use this access to create your own custom applications or to script interactions with Tableau Server resources.
