With Tableau, there are several options for integrations.

  • You can add an image to your dashboard and have the Action URL for the image link to the Data Cookbook specification
  • You can add a web page to your dashboard that is just a button that will open the dcb_spec_summary.html page in a new window.
  • You can add a web page to your dashboard and have it load the dcb_spec_summary.html page (the Summary Viewer) of a specification.
  • You can connect to the Data Cookbook directly as a data source within Tableau and join your data to the definitions in the Data Cookbook by name.  This allows you to show the definitions in a Tooltip within Tableau.

Please contact for more details on any of these methods.
