Release Notes for Tableau 9.0.6

Resolved Issues

Issue ID Description

Clearing the filter selections in a Custom List quick filter sometimes caused Tableau to stop running unexpectedly.


When adding a WMS Server to Tableau Desktop, the following error message appeared: "Error 504: Gateway timeout".


Sometimes, in a published story, clicking a Story Point and then refreshing the browser page caused the error, "Unknown Visual".


The "fullname" and "username" functions did not appear correctly in tooltips if the data source contained columns with those names.


Using a Google Big Query data source with joined tables sometimes produced the following error: "The JOIN operator's right-side table must be a small table".


On computers with certain graphics cards, unwanted borders sometimes appeared in the view.


A workbook with a live connection to a Hadoop data source sometimes took a long time to cancel queries after you clicked the Cancel button.


When using a Progress OpenEdge data source, SQL errors sometimes occurred when you filtered on a calculated field.


On a Redshift connection, when a calculated field name contained a mix of ASCII and non-ASCII characters, sometimes the calculation returned an erroneous Null result.


Sometimes, after changing a filter, an expensive query was sent to Redshift.


When editing a Google Analytics connection that included calculated metrics, a LogicAssert error sometimes occurred.


Sometimes changing a filter on a dashboard resulted in the following error: "Invalid field formula due to limitations in the data source".


Tableau Desktop treated a binary collation on Vertica connections incorrectly as a case-sensitive string collation, which caused filters on string-typed fields to return incorrect data.


When you accessed a shared dataset on Google BigQuery for which you weren't granted project-level access, an "Access Denied" error occurred.


A relative date filter connecting to Teradata used a Timestamp data type, which resulted in sub-optimal performance.


Launching Tableau Desktop resulted in a proxy authentication prompt on networks that use multiple NTLM proxies via a Proxy Auto-Config (PAC) file.


Formatted text pasted into a comment cell sometimes was saved incorrectly.


A calculated field with a long name that included both ASCII and non-ASCII characters returned Null or caused a "BinaryTupleWriter::AddTuple" error.


Sometimes, when changing the My Tableau Repository location, many duplicate folders were created.


On Teradata connections, when a non-ASCII table name was added to the data source, the name was truncated even when fewer than 10 non-ASCII characters were in the name.


In the calculation editor, typing certain special characters produced unexpected cursor movement.
