UiPath Activities

The UiPath Activities Guide

Tableau Scope

The Tableau activities use an (Username*) and (Password) to establish an authenticated connection between UiPath and your Tableau application. This connection authorizes a Robot to call the Tableau APIs and access resources on your behalf.

You may also authenticate using an (Existing Connection) that has been established by a previous Tableau Scope activity.

After establishing a connection, a parent Tableau Scope activity can output a record of the connection in a Connection object (Connection) that you can use in subsequent child scope activities.

How it works

The following steps are an example of how the activity works from design time (i.e., the activity dependencies and input/output properties) to run time.

  1. Complete the Setup steps.
  2. Add the Tableau Scope activity to your project.
  3. Choose the authentication types you want to use.
  4. Enter values for one of the authentication types properties.
  5. Optionally create and enter a Connection variable for Output property. You can use this variable in subsequent uses of the Tableau Scope activity.

Properties

The values for the following properties are specified when adding this activity to your project in UiPath Studio.

Configure

To build your project and enable the (Object Wizard) in other activities, you must use the (Connection Wizard) by clicking the (Configure) button. The Configure Connection dialog allows you to specify both a (Design Connection) and a (Robot Connection).

Property values in the (Design Connection) section do not need to be quoted.
