Resolved Issues

Issue ID Description

When accessing an embedded view, a 500 error on /sidecar/scripts.js would be shown in the browser console.


When the "tsm maintenance ziplogs" command was run with the -a flag, the msinfo and netstat files were not contained.


A new option was added to TSM which should be used when the External FIlestore and External Repository are enabled. The snapshot-backup prepare command (tsm maintenance snapshot-backup prepare) will now allow for an additional flag (--include-pg-backup) to ensure that when Tableau Server is upgraded to 2021.1 or higher, the repository backup is included in the snapshot backup.


In the TSM user interface starting with version 2019.1.26, if a change was made to the SMTP password or the External SSL setting, not all pending changes would be discarded.


Tableau Server would sometimes not display the licenses on the Manage All Sites > Settings > Licenses page. TSM does show the correct product keys activated and the user seat count on Tableau Server is correct.


Internet Communication Error would sometimes occur when a workbook was published via Tabcmd and the initial node of an HA installation was not available.
