Resolved Issues

Issue ID Description

In Tableau Server environments installed on German localized Windows operating systems, the data update time inserted in text objects always showed the current time instead of when the data source extract was last refreshed.


Data source passwords were not remembered even after you checked the Remember Password box when prompted for data source credentials.


When you edited a published Salesforce data source in Tableau Server, to update the password, the change would not be correctly saved even though the operation appeared to complete successfully. As a result, any scheduled extract refreshes for the data source would fail with an error: "INVALID_LOGIN: Invalid username, password, security token; or user locked out."


Tableau Bold and Tableau Semibold fonts did not render correctly in published views.


An unexpected error could sometimes occur, due to VizQL Server processes crashing, when loading some workbooks.


In some cases, background images would intermittently disappear when reloading a dashboard.


Configuring Tableau Server to allow data repository access would fail if the server was still running.


In some cases, Tableau Server memory usage could steadily grow and result in poor performance when loading views. A server restart was usually required to restore expected performance.


Scheduled extract refreshes would fail for workbooks containing an extract of a published extract data source and a Viz in Tooltip in one of its views.


A "Cannot read property 'x' of undefined" error would occur when loading some map views with a large number of marks.


Subscribe button was sometimes missing from workbooks with embedded Google BigQuery connections.


Sometimes, performance degraded while exporting a full PDF using tabcmd.


When you tried to Save As when web authoring a workbook that used Google BigQuery with embedded credentials, a "This workbook contains a Google Big Query data source which requires embedded credentials. To save as another workbook, select "Embed password for data source"." error occurred.


In published views with continuous date filters, sometimes a thousands separator comma was inserted in the year (For example, 1995 became 1,995).


When using a monitoring software on the computer running Tableau Server, sometimes users were unable to login, services were down, and vizportal process threads increased rapidly due to the monitoring software continuously sending requests to systeminfo.xml.


When running manual or scheduled Snowflake extract refreshes on Tableau Online and Tableau Server 2018.2, the refresh task fails with "Missing Password" error.


When attempting to open or web-edit a workbook connected to TabPy on Tableau Server, an "An unexpected error occurred. If you continue to receive this error please contact your Tableau Server Administrator" error sometimes occurred.
