Save data source

In this step, you can select a name and the save location for the data source. You can also add tags to the data source for organizing and filtering purposes.

The folder structure located on the Tableau® server can also be managed.

On the highest level, MindSphere manages the folder structure. This means that MindSphere creates one folder for every tenant and also one folder for every subtenant, that is displayed below "Subtenants". This structure is not editable. Down the MindSphere main structure, you are free to create folders ("Projects" in Tableau®) as per the requirements.

Save data source

The datasource configuration is now stored in MindSphere. Depending on the selected update mode, the data will be scheduled for processing. Once finished, it is reflected in the UI with a green checkmark. The datasource also contains static data of assets along with the IoT data.

The static data contains following asset information:

  • Name
  • Description
  • Time zone
  • Location (country, region and locality)


When you move an existing data source from one project to another, a new data source will be created on Tableau Server at the new location. The original data source will remain in the old project on Tableau Server until it is manually deleted. Existing workbooks based on the original data source will not be migrated and will not receive any further data updates.
