    I am new to the CA Agile Central so please excuse me if it is a very basic question.
    My requirement is to develop a Tableau Dashboard and need to pull data from CA Agile. Currently I am using the Excel Add in to import. Is it possible to automate the process or use any other data import technique.
    Any Help will be appreciated.

    Hi Ashish,

    I'm not entirely certain what types of data format Tableau requires but it sounds like you're able to work with CSV.

    If that's the case you might take a look at the DB Connector (https://techdocs.broadcom.com/content/broadcom/techdocs/us/en/ca-enterprise-software/agile-development-and-management/rally-platform-ca-agile-central/rally/integrating-top/connectors/ca-agile-central-database-connector.html)

    While it will allow you to push data directly into a database, it can also stop short of that step and keep the data dumps in a CSV format for ingesting into another platform.  You can run this connector on a scheduled job so it creates the CSV files at specific times of the day and then you could have some other task that ingests those into Tableau possibly
