How to use the Tableau/Riffyn Web Data Connector

Riffyn has recently created a Web Data Connector for Tableau. This connector allows Tableau users to directly import Riffyn data sets for use in visualizations.

Data tables from Riffyn can be easily imported and opened in Tableau.



How to use the Web Data Connector

1. Open Tableau and access the Riffyn Web Data Connector for Tableau

Select the Web Data Connector option under “To Server”.  Tableau’s internal browser will open and ask you to enter the URL to a Web Data Connector.

For enterprise users, the URL is  

When the Riffyn Web Data Connector Login screen loads, ensure that your VPC URL is correct.  

Enter your Riffyn credentials and click “Login”.  


2. Import your data set(s) into Tableau

When your credentials are accepted, you will be presented with a single form field to enter the Experiment IDs from the Riffyn Experiments whose data you want to import.

There are many formats you can use to import multiple Experiment results:

1) Experiment ID: Enter one or more Experiment IDs separated by a semicolon “;”

Example: Lc8AnQiZ2L3Hvsy3Q; m3oCXJ5pc9SJfYkt9;

2) Process ID: Enter a process ID to get all of the associated Experiments.  

Example: fWzKizgdxu4SdWbib

3) Process ID and Range of Experiment numbers:

Example: fWzKizgdxu4SdWbib: [6, 9-11]; Lc8AnQiZ2L3Hvsy3Q


3.  Incorporate data into your visualization

Once your data has been imported, you update it or join it together with other tables as needed.

Two tables have been imported from two Riffyn Experiments.  They can be opened individually or, if applicable, joined to create a new table.

We strive to make sure you have access to your Riffyn data from your favorite analysis and visualization tools.  We’ll be expanding the capabilities of the Web Data Connector for Tableau to enable greater functionality. Updates will be posted in Riffyn’s help center at
