Enable Tableau Prep Conductor on your Tableau Online Site

Note: Tableau Bridge is not currently supported. You can only connect directly to cloud-hosted data sources. If you connect to on-premises data sources, you can convert those data sources to a published data source and connect using a Tableau Bridge client if Tableau Bridge is configured for the data source. For more information, see Publish a flow from Tableau Prep Builder for Tableau Online.

Prep Conductor is automatically enabled on your Tableau Online site after you purchase the Data Management Add-on. For information on how to purchase the Data Management Add-on, contact your account manager.

Step 1: Install Tableau Prep Builder

Install Tableau Prep Builder on your local machine.

Step 2: Log into Tableau Online

  1. Sign into the server through the Server->Sign In menu. For more information about how to sign in to Tableau Online, see Sign In to Tableau Online(Link opens in a new window).

  2. On the General page under Settings, if you see a section that says Notifications for Extract Jobs and Flow Runs then Tableau Online is licensed with the Data Management Add-on and Prep Conductor is enabled.

    Note: If you see a section that only says Notifications for Extract Jobs then Tableau Online is not licensed with the Data Management Add-on and Prep Conductor is not available. Contact your account manager to purchase the Data Management Add-on.

  3. Verify that the flow run failure notification emails are enabled for your site. This should be turned on by default.
