Question

Are cross-database joined data source refreshes supported with Tableau Bridge?

Environment

  • Tableau Online
  • Tableau Bridge

Answer

Tableau Bridge can be used to refresh cross-database joined data sources. The database connections defined in the workbook or data source determine how you can publish and keep the data fresh on Tableau Online. As long as the individual data connections are of a type that Tableau Bridge can refresh, then the cross-database joined data source can be refreshed by Tableau Bridge as well.

See Use Tableau Bridge to Expand Data Freshness Options for a description of the types of data sources that can be refreshed by Tableau Bridge.
