Making a connection to Odata took longer than in previous versions.
When connecting to a Pivotal Greenplum data source using the ODBC driver, long string values were truncated to 100 characters.
When using Tableau Desktop to connect to a published data source that does not normally require credentials (extracts and certain Hive Server configurations), a data source with embedded password, or a data source with integrated authentication (SSPI for example), you are prompted unnecessarily for credentials.
If you click Cancel, the prompt closes but you are left at a blank screen. If you click OK without entering anything, the prompt displays again.
To work around this, enter any value for username and password when prompted, then click OK to continue as usual.
This issue was found in the 2/19 release of Tableau Desktop 8.2.8 and is corrected in the 2/20 release of 8.2.8 (build 8200.15.0219.2110).
