Tableau Desktop (Back to top)
Issue ID
92925

Added many city equivalents to the Tokyo area in the built-in geocoding. These include large towns, large villages, special wards, etc.

92963

When connected to Essbase databases, some quick filter queries were taking longer than expected because Tableau Desktop was unnecessarily creating sets in the query.

94091

Added and corrected Canadian postal code Forward Sortation Areas (FSA) in the built-in geocoding.

94269

Workbooks with calculated fields that used two data sources would sometimes stop functioning.

94429

Tableau Desktop would not connect to more than one table when connecting to Amazon Redshift databases. A "table does not exist" error occurred, even though the table existed, and the user had permission to access the table.

47888

Data on cities in Puerto Rico with population greater than 15,000 was not available in the Tableau built-in geocoding.

95988

When creating calculated fields that used the DAY(), MONTH(), or YEAR() functions while connected to Essbase database, Tableau Desktop would generate an internal error and sometimes stop responding.

84367

Made several corrections to the built-in geocoding and map data. These corrections include separating the Muchinga province from the Northern province in Zambia, correcting the Thai provinces of Nakhon Pathom and Nakhon Phanom locations, which were incorrectly associated with each other's true locations, removing duplicate point geography for 10 Turkish cities, and separating the North Kalimantan province of Indonesia from the East Kalimantan province.

96283

For connections to Oracle databases, queries using the GLOBAL_CONTEXT_MEMORY variable would return an ORA-03113 error.

97539

Connecting to a Sybase ASE database that uses non-UTF8 characters and has character set conversion disabled would fail. The character set attribute can now be specified using a TDC file to allow these connections.

91322

In built-in geocoding, California zip code 92350, Loma Linda, was mapped to Mojave National Preserve, instead of to its actual location 177 miles away.

91992

Corrected the built-in geocoding and mapping data to accommodate border changes and mergers in Russia, Surinam, and Libya.

Tableau Server (Back to top)
Issue ID
93737

Installing Tableau Server on a machine with dual network interface cards (NIC) and configuring it for Active Directory (AD) user authentication would result in the Machine column displaying as blank on the server’s Maintenance page.

94461

Right-clicking or holding the CTRL key while clicking the Admin tab in the navigation area did not offer an "Open in New Tab" option.

78333

Date parameter slider controls in Tableau Server required you to click forward twice for the view to update when the system locale of the primary computer was set to a European locale.

94960

Workbooks based on certain MySQL data sources showed infinite spinners and never completed loading. The error "The protocol is disconnected" was logged.

81951

In the JavaScript API, calling the getParametersAsync() method would prevent later calls to changeParameterValueAsync() from working. The program would return the error: "Failed: Invalid parameter: value".

95235

Clicking a crosstab header caused the header to disappear.

82049

Views published to Tableau Server would not render correctly after the view was republished following a change to the underlying data source.

82812

In custom views, making a filter selection on a sheet would sometimes take you to another sheet in the dashboard, instead of updating your filter selection, resulting in an infinite spinner.

96078

Changing the date with a date range parameter slider would correctly update the view, but sometimes incorrectly update the slider itself (for example, it might show an End Date of January 2013 when it should show December 2012).

Tableau Server sometimes created too many folders in its temporary directory, in some cases using disk space to the point where the server would stop functioning.

96373

Date quick filters had additional characters in workbooks published to Tableau Server using the Spanish and Portuguese locales.

89134

Two-fingered scrolling for nested panes in Safari 6.1.1 and 7.0 would not work for Tableau Server views, views embedded via an Iframe, or views that were part of custom web applications created with Tableau's JavaScript API. See Tableau Knowledge Base Article for details on Iframe embedding.
