I am getting Uncaught ReferenceError: tableau is not defined.

Please suggest.

Below is the code:

(function() {
    // Create the connector object
    var myConnector = tableau.makeConnector();

    // Define the schema
    myConnector.getSchema = function(schemaCallback) {
        var cols = [{
            id: "shipTo",
            alias: "shipTo",
            dataType: tableau.dataTypeEnum.string
        }, {
            id: "soldTo",
            alias: "soldTo",
            dataType: tableau.dataTypeEnum.string
        }, {
            id: "uid",
            alias: "uid",
            dataType: tableau.dataTypeEnum.string

        var tableSchema = {
            id: "earthquakeFeed",
            alias: "Order data",
            columns: cols


    // Download the data
    myConnector.getData = function(table, doneCallback) {
        $.getJSON("*****************", function(resp) {
            var feat = resp.customers;
            tableData = [];

            // Iterate over the JSON object
            for (var i = 0, len = feat.length; i < len; i++) {
                    "shipTo": feat[i].shipTo,
                    "soldTo": feat[i].soldTo,
                    "uid": feat[i].uid



    // Create event listeners for when the user submits the form
    $(document).ready(function() {
        $("#submitButton").click(function() {
            tableau.connectionName = "Order data"; // This will be the data source name in Tableau
            tableau.submit(); // This sends the connector object to Tableau

    Its hard to say specifically without seeing the page but I suspect the problem is that you are referencing the tableau variable but it is not accessible within the context of where the error is occurring. This doesn't look like a Datatables specific issue or question. However if you want help debugging please post a link to your page so we can take a look.

    It just seems that the tableau variable is out of scope at that point. It doesn't seem like a DataTable issue so may be worth asking on Tableau specific forum, or Stackoverflow,
