What's New in the Extract API 2.0
What's new in the Extract API for 2018.3
You can now use the Extract API to create extracts that contain more than one table. Previously, you could only create an extract with a single table, and that table had to be called
Extract. Starting with Tableau 2018.3, extracts can contain either a single table or multiple tables. For information about using the client library
addTable()functions and methods, see Creating and Updating Extracts. For information about choosing when to use single table or multiple table storage, see Decide how the extract data should be stored, and the blog post, You can now choose multiple table storage for extracts.
Added in the Extract API for Tableau 10.5
- This is the initial release of the Extract API 2.0.
- The Extract API 2.0 incorporates and expands functionality that was previously available in the Tableau SDK, but only works to create
.hyperfiles, supported in Tableau 10.5 and later. You can continue to use the Tableau SDK to create
.tdefiles for previous versions of Tableau. To publish extracts, use the Tableau Server REST API, or the Tableau Server Client (Python) Library. To refresh extracts, use the Tableau Server REST API.
- The Extract API 2.0 provides only 64-bit versions of the client libraries. You need to use 64-bit versions of the tools to compile the libraries and samples.
