Hello Philippe,

Thank you for posting your query in Replicon Community.

As I correctly understand you would like to have an interval refresh of data from Replicon to Tableau and you are using the Replicon connector.

  • Can you please provide me more details about the credentials part?
  • Do you have the online or the desktop version of Tableau?
Please help us with the above information to assist you accordingly.

I would also suggest you follow the below article and see if this helps for the basic understanding of the refresh via extract or web data connector:

I have developed the application using Tableau Desktop and would like to publish both the workbook and the data source using Tableau Online.
As Replication is not a trusted Web Data Connector, I have installed Tableau Bridge to access replicon data.
I would like to now how do I configure the connection to Replicon to automate the process of refreshing the data.
As far a I can see, there are 3 information to provide to connect to the Replication WDC 
. The company
. The userId
. The Password

In tableau bridge , I see only 2 items (UserID and Password) 
How do I setup the connection to add the company information ?

Thanks 

Philippe
