Release Notes for Tableau 9.2.12
Note: Tableau Desktop customers in environments with Product Updates enabled will be prompted to upgrade a few days after a maintenance release is made available. For more information, see the Tableau Knowledge Base.
Various changes were applied to improve security. See Security Bulletins for more details.
In Tableau Desktop, you could not connect to a single row text or Excel file with no column headers.
In some cases, when connected to a Progress OpenEdge data source in Tableau Desktop and using a boolean field as a data source filter, a no such function error would occur when loading a view or describing a field.
Refreshing an IBM Big SQL-based extract using the Tableau Data Extract Command-Line Utility would fail with an error: '[IBM][CLI Driver] SQL30082N Security processing failed with reason "17" ("UNSUPPORTED FUNCTION"). SQLSTATE=08001 Invalid username or password.'
When you printed a workbook to PDF from Tableau Desktop, with an unspecified paper size, the first page would not have properly sized margins.
In Tableau Server, views connected to SAP HANA using SAML SSO would prompt users for SAP HANA credentials, if left idle in a browser for too long, and it would not actually be possible to sign back in for a period of time. The SAML timeout for SAP HANA SSO now has a longer default and is configurable.
Publishing a workbook to Tableau Server via REST API could sometimes fail with a bad request error.
Tableau Server connections to SAP HANA using SAML SSO were sometimes unnecessarily slow.
In some cases, loading a view with an SAP HANA prompt in Tableau Server would result in a long spinner with an eventual HTTP 503 error or, sometimes, a "Session Ended by Server" error.
