Connecting with Tableau
Before starting this procedure, open the Devo web application and go to Administration → Data Management → Api/OData. Identify the Odata feed that you want to link to and select More Info from the feed's ellipsis menu. This opens the Feed Info window where you can copy the OData URL of the feed and the necessary authentication credentials. Keep this open for easy access.
