Bridge Site Capacity

A site has a 100 GB storage limit for workbooks and extracts. An individual workbook or data source (live or extract) published to your site can have a maximum size of 15 GB.

Tableau Bridge can have an impact on the site capacity.

  • Extracts generated by Tableau Bridge do have an impact on the site storage capacity.
  • Virtual connections and embedded data sources that are extracted through Bridge also have an impact the site capacity. This is because the data is processed through Tableau Cloud Backgrounder.
