Configure a Tableau Pulse Lightning Web Component

The Tableau Pulse Lightning web component (LWC) allows Salesforce customers to drag and drop embedded Tableau Pulse metrics from Tableau Cloud onto Salesforce Lightning pages.

For instructions to turn on a Tableau LWC, add a trusted URL, set up seamless authentication and host mapping, and add a component to a Lightning page, see Configuring Tableau Lightning Web Components.

When you’ve added a Tableau Pulse LWC to your Lightning page, configure the component fields.
