Pre-requisites:

  • This guide presumes that you have a Tug (connector) already set up, otherwise see: Setting Up a Tug in Tugger. (These guides detail setting up the Tugger connector and importing into Power BI Desktop, which can be skipped.)
  • If your guide is not available in the above link, then try the more generic guide here


The Analytics Setup contains everything you need to export your data; it also provides the important security information for Tableau (and Power BI Desktop) to correctly import your data ready for viewing in your custom reports.


In addition, the OData URL and the Authentication Details are all that you will need to import your data into Tableau, see: Tableau Users: Import OData Into Tableau.



The example: the image below, shows a Harvest connector, but other than the number of Power BI Report Templates available, the other connectors will be the same.




You'll likely notice the highlighted template, for Power BI users, they can use this to import their data; this feature isn't available for Tableau users.


To continue with importing your data into Tableau, the guide here details the steps: Tableau Users: Import OData Into Tableau.



(If you wish to Import your data from Power BI Desktop to Power BI Online, please see the appropriate guide: Setting Up a Tug in Tugger.)
