Release Notes for Tableau 9.1.5
This release addresses an issue found in Tableau Server 9.1.4 (9100.16.0114.0755) for some environments configured to use Active Directory. A change to the Active Directory user binding (from samAccountName to UPN) caused existing users to be removed from groups and new users to be added based on UPN when synchronizing Active Directory groups. This resulted in duplicate users and/or users not being able to sign into Tableau Server.
A new version, Tableau Server 9.1.5 (9100.16.0125.1553), is available from the Alternate Download Site.
In Tableau Server, Teradata extracts could not be refreshed if the data connection contained a <ServerUser> or <ServerUserFull> query band parameter.
In a published workbook on Tableau Server, a legend sometimes included no specified title or body font, and resulted in an error: "undefined is not an object (evaluation 'e.pe.split')."

In Tableau Server, a change to the Active Directory user binding (from samAccountName to UPN) caused existing users to be removed from groups and new users to be added based on UPN when synchronizing Active Directory groups.
