Simple dash table update

I would like to update my Dash data_table based on an interval. It will run but nothing is updating. I don’t think this should be hard but I am clearly missing something. Here is what I have:

import dash
from dash.dependencies import Input, Output
import dash_core_components as dcc
import dash_html_components as html
import dash_table
import time
import pandas as pd

def getData():
Only can hit api every 6 seconds for 14 total items, 
which is relevant towards the Dash interval  
        df = pd.DataFrame()
        for item in list:
            data  = *hit api*
        return df

app = dash.Dash(__name__)

# passing in just column names to avoid needlessly hitting API 
tblcols=[{'name': 'col1', 'id': 'col1'},
     {'name': 'col2', 'id': 'col2'}, 
     {'name': 'col3', 'id': 'col3'}      

app.layout = html.Div([
      html.H4('Dashboard Name'),
      dcc.Interval('graph-update',interval = 500000, n_intervals = 0),
              id = 'table',
          data = [{}],
          columns=tblcols )])

        [Input('graph-update', 'n_intervals')]
def updateTable(n):

     calling the get data function

     updated_data = getData()
     return updated_data.to_dict('records')

if __name__ == '__main__':

Again, this will run and return the column headers which I pass but when I see that the update has ran in Console "“POST /_dash-update-component HTTP/1.1"”, nothing changes
