- Open a Command Prompt as an administrator.
- Change to the Tableau Server bin directory and run either of the following commands:
- Get URL
Using a URL string as one of its parameters, sends an HTTP GET request to Tableau Server. The result is returned as a file.
tabcmd get "[URL of your view].csv" -f "[FileName].csv"
tabcmd get "/views/Finance/InvestmentGrowth.csv" -f "InvestmentGrowth.csv"
Exports the data from a view on Tableau Server and saves it to a file.
tabcmd export "[URL after views/]" --csv -f "[FileName]"
where [remainder of URL] is the URL path starting after views/.
Here’s an export command that you could run using the following full URL for a view:
tabcmd export "Q1Sales/Sales_Report" --csv -f "weekly-report"
