Known Issues

The following is a list of some of the known issues with Tableau products. We include only issues we think are important or would potentially impact many customers. Use this information to decide when to upgrade to a new release, and to see if we know about issues that are affecting you.

This is a dynamic list: We are adding new issues as we discover them. When we release a new version that addresses an issue, we add a link to the release note for that issue in the Status column. After 45 days, we remove fixed issues from this list. Fixed issues are listed on the Release Notes page.

Workbooks or data sources with an Eloqua connection published to Tableau Online or Tableau Server 10.1.4 or 10.2.0 or newer will refresh once and fail thereafter with a "Revoked Tokens" error. A workaround is available and it requires you to recreate the saved Eloqua credentials on the server by navigating to your Saved credentials and selecting "Add" and signing in again after each scheduled refresh in order to refresh again.

Fixed in 10.1.6
