In this discussion with Aidan Moore, I continue my journey trying to understand the art of the possible with analytics extensions, and Aidan walks me through progressively interesting solutions that come together to make something really simple for an end user but powerful for the Salesforce Platform.
Tableau release notes Beginning with version 2021.2, you can create multiple analytics extension connections for any site. Versions prior to 2021.2 are limited to a single analytics extension for any site.
After you create a connection to an analytic extension, you can communicate with your external service through calculated fields. Each calculated field uses the SCRIPT functions for expressions, operating as a table calculation.
