Tableau Prep – Enabling drag and drop execution of flow files
How good it will be if you can simply drag and drop a flow file to run it? Actually it can be achieved with a single line BAT file.
How to achieve this? Here is the code inside FlowRunner.BAT file
call "C:\Program Files\Tableau\Tableau Prep 2018.3\scripts\tableau-prep-cli.bat" -t "%~1"
- line 1: Extract the dropped file’s path and execute it using Tableau Prep command line
Please note that line 2 is optional and it is not required if you do not want to review the information on terminal.
