Quick example of a Tableau Web Data Connector (WDC) pointing to the output of a SAS proc json.
Reason: For example, your source data is in SAS, and your BI tool is Tableau. You want a way to publish the data to Tableau and you have access to a webserver.
This is based on this tutorial.
To generate the JSON I installed WPS Community edition.
libname this "./data"; proc json out="./json/class.json"; export this.class; run;
To get this demo going, copy the files in the Github repo to a location on your webserver. In this example I’ll be using my mortie23.github.io/
Open up Tableau (in this case I’m just using Tableau Public Desktop).
Get Class Data! and you should be able to build a dashboard from the JSON data now.
