Tableau Integration

At our organization, we've experimented with Web Data Connectors in tableau to have a place where our tableau server can get information directly from Workfront's API and build more advanced reports than Workfront is capable of producing for us (side note it'd be nice to be able to have a view into Workfront's RDBMS for our own data so without having to go through such extreme development measures just to get our own data into a usable format). This integration is working great for us, but it'd be nice to have the next piece - loading tableau reports back into Workfront.

We've started experimenting with standing up a web server that accepts parameters in a restful format - like ?portfolioID=...&programID=... - which we then use to load a tableau report into an HTML page. That html page is loaded into Workfront via an external page view on a dashboard. One major drawback is that it requires us to have unique URLs for each report on a dashboard. For example, I can't build a report that filter's by portfolio ID and get that value from the fact that it's on a Custom Tab of a particular portfolio. It'd be nice if this was a native integration as we'd have more opportunities for dynamic reporting and customization.

seconded. This would be great. We haven't quite gotten to the point of setting up the Web Data Connectors, yet. Can you tell me how much effort it took to get these set up?
