APIs are executed on the server
Tableau supports a robust extension framework for deep and complex company integration and for embedded analytics solutions. The expansion options range from the automation of administrative tasks and the integration of extensive visualization to company portal applications that can be used to transfer data from any data source into a format supported by Tableau and enable system automation with an increasing number of standards-based APIs. For more information, see IT Tools and the Tableau Developer Program.
Tableau's REST API lets you create, read, update, delete, and manage Tableau Server and Tableau Online entities programmatically over HTTP. The API provides easy access to the functionality behind the data sources, projects, workbooks, site users, and sites on Tableau Server or Tableau Online. You can use this access to create your own custom applications or define interactions with Tableau resources via script.
Tableau Server provides direct support for and connection to a large number of data sources. However, you can also preprocess or access and compile data from other applications before working with it in Tableau. The Tableau Hyper API includes a number of features that you can use to automate interactions with Tableau extract (.hyper) files, such as the following, for Tableau 10.5 and later and for Tableau Online:
- Create extract files for data sources that are not currently supported by Tableau
- Automate custom ETL (extract, transform, and load) operations, such as: For example, implementing updates with a rolling time window or custom incremental updates
- Retrieving data from an extract file
In addition to supporting all the features of the previous Extract API 2.0 for creating extract files, the Hyper API offers access to new features. You can create, read, update and delete data in .hyper files while using the full speed of Hyper for creating and updating extract files. Data from CSV files can be loaded directly without special programming. With the power of SQL to interact with data in .hyper files, the API provides methods for executing any SQL commands on .hyper files.

Tableau's Extensions API enables developers to create dashboard extensions that allow users to integrate data from other applications and use them interactively directly in a Tableau dashboard. Such extensions include, for example, a write-back function, user-defined interactive interfaces and the integration of third-party products. Dashboard extensions run in custom dashboard zones. You can interact with the rest of the dashboard using the Tableau Extensions API. The available third-party extensions are listed in the Extensions Gallery. In order to publish on Tableau Server, extensions must be added to the allow list (Windows | Linux). Tableau Server administrators can enable per server or per site, depending on your code review and security rating. For information about Tableau Online, see Manage Dashboard Extensions in Tableau Online.
The Document API provides a way to modify Tableau workbooks and data source XML. You can use Python to create a template workbook in Tableau and then easily deploy it to multiple servers, update data sources and connections, and evaluate fields from a data source.
Tableau Server includes a set of management services called Tableau Services Manager (TSM). This documentation describes the TSM API (0.5 alpha version) which is under development. It allows you to perform a wide range of tasks, such as: These include starting and stopping Tableau Server, viewing the status of services and nodes, backing up and restoring Tableau Server, making changes to the configuration and topology, changing port assignments for services, and creating archives for log files.
The Tableau Metadata API can be used to query tables, data sources, workbooks and sheets in Tableau Server and Tableau Online. This fast and flexible API includes common attributes such as name, host name and URI as well as type-specific information such as field data types and certification. You can also use the API to create related elements such as B. Query tables and columns used by a particular data source. In addition to the Metadata API, the Tableau REST API also contains metadata methods. See the topic Metadata Methods for an explanation.

Webhooks are a common way to trigger automated workflows that respond to events in your Tableau deployment. You can create workflows with Tableau Server 2019.4 and higher, as well as with Tableau Online. For more information, see the webhooks documentation and examples.
