Question

Is federated data source refresh supported with Tableau Bridge.

Environment

  • Tableau Online 10.3.0
  • Tableau Bridge

Answer

Tableau Bridge can be used to refresh federated (multi-connection) data sources. The database connections defined in the workbook or data source determines how you can publish and keep the data fresh on Tableau Online, so as long as the individual data connections are of a type that Tableau Bridge can refresh, then the federated 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.
