Managing IDL data sources

You can subscribe to subscription API and file changes, if IDL is provisioned for your tenant.

To create a subscription based data source, follow these steps:

  1. Click "IDL subscription" and select a project.

  2. Enter the name and path of a file. You can either directly enter a path or select the file in a browser.

  3. Click "Save".


The file will be transferred to Tableau® server when it is changed in "IDL subscription". To build a visualization based on a file that already exists, you have to re-upload it to trigger the subscription.

Supported files and file sizes

Currently, only CSV files upto 20 MB are supported. The number of subscription based data sources are limited to 10 per tenant.
