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.
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 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.'
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.
