I was able to get tableau desktop and FileMaker connected and working well together. Now I want to connect it to Tableau Online. Has anyone been able to get this to work?
Have the latest version of everything on a Windows VM. Tableau 10.5.
Tableau Desktop connections and refreshes work to FileMaker's web data connector running on a FM Server 16 box.
What I am trying to do is publish those data sources to Tableau online (which I am able to do), and schedule incremental refreshes (which I am getting an error message on). Tableau Bridge is where the magic is supposed to happen, but any refreshes there result in "Unexpected Error". I contacted Tableau support and they had me setup a command line prompt that would connect to the web data connector in the same way the bridge does. From that I get an error message returned from fm_connecter.js indicating a JSON parse error on line 208.
The line of code there is:
var passwordObj = JSON.parse(tableau.password);
Basically tableau.password should be a JSON object and instead is just a text string that is the password at that point in the code.
