Tableau Desktop (Back to top)
Issue ID

Tableau Desktop for Mac failed to switch the data source authentication method to Kerberos when the user cleared the user name from a SQL Server connection.


When a view with table calculations was exported to crosstab, unexpected rows sometimes appeared in the result.


An error occurred when you saved a workbook with a sheet title that included the following two characters "< >" .


When you worked in a published data source that was connected to calculationview in SAP HANA, an invalid syntax error occurred.


In Tableau Desktop, when you opened a saved workbook that contained table calculations on a secondary data source, certain settings were erased, resulting in an invalid calculation.


The "Include" and "Exclude" expressions were interpreted as "Fixed" if no dimensions were listed.


When opening a published workbook, the Owner column showed the Tableau Server user name, instead of the full Display Name.


Connecting to a Postgres data source failed if the password provided contained certain special characters.


When refreshing an extract against a Microsoft Access data source, the .mdb file sometimes remained locked for editing, even after the refresh had completed.


Creating a percentage-sampled extract from an Amazon Redshift data source produced the following error message, "Top [n] percent is not supported".


After you removed a dashboard filter from the underlying sheet, closed, and then reopened the workbook, the filter controls sometimes rendered incorrectly.


When you changed an existing data connection, if there were multiple Tableau Server data sources with the same name, the list did not show all the data sources.


Appending CSV file data to an extract sometimes produced an error like the following: "Tableau Data Engine Error: 4: SimpleDatabase::SelectMetadataName: expected found=1, actual found=0 (fk=18446744073709551615 name="Cache" nameTable="SCHEMAS")."

Tableau Server (Back to top)
Issue ID

Tooltips sometimes displayed all underlying data, rather than the filtered subset.


Tableau Server failed to retain data source passwords on subsequent log-in prompts, even when "Remember my password" was selected.


In newly created sites, the guest account appeared in the user list, even when you disabled guest access at the server level.


Sometimes when restoring from backup, "tablicjava.dll" failed to load, causing the restore process to fail.


In any web browser, loading Tableau Server views one after another increased memory usage.


On a distributed installation of Tableau Server that used multiple repositories, if the repository failed over, in some cases all the data in the repository was lost. If you run Tableau Server 9.0.x, we strongly encourage you to upgrade to the latest version.


In environments where disk I/O was restricted to less than 5 MBPS, either average throughput or as a result of occasional spikes, the Tableau repository periodically restarted, which put Tableau Server into a "Degraded" state and made it unavailable. For more information, see the Tableau Knowledge Base article.


Workbooks with extracts that used Unicode characters in the extract file name failed to load after the workbook was restored from a Tableau Server backup.


A Tableau Server view that had been left idle sometimes displayed the error, "Uncaught Error: Failed to re-initialize session, " when you returned to it.


When you changed sites, the alert count for the new site did not refresh until you clicked the Alerts icon.


When vizqlserver.showshare was turned off, the Share button was removed from all Tableau Server views, not only embedded views.


When you exported a Tableau Server view to CSV, measures sometimes were duplicated.


Site administrators could import groups, even when the site was configured to allow only server administrators to import groups.

This version is available from the Customer Account Center.
