    One way I know it can is via QuNect - which is a third party ODBC driver for quickbase:

    Alteryx in combination with Quickbase API is what I use to output a tableau data extract to our Tableau Server.

    Hi Perla, what QB API are you using to connect with Alteryx?

    I use the Download Tool in Alteryx in combination with the Quickbase HTTP API. Documentation for that API can be found at the following URL: https://help.quickbase.com/api-guide/index.html

    I would be really interested to see how you do this.  I just downloaded Alteryx and I have been trying to get this to work for some time.  Any further instructions that you might have would be super helpful!!

    We solved this problem and created a tool for it called Paasporter.   Our website is www.paasporter.com 

    The key issue was to have relatively user friendly way to Extract your data from Quick Base and build a real SQL DB.  Then Tableau can connect using its native tools.   No need to understand the Quick Base API.   Besides Tableau, your Quick Base data is available for any other BI/BA tool, Watson, Hyperion....  anything that talks to SQL which is essentially the whole market.
