Resolved Issues

Issue ID Description

In environments where the data engine is run on a worker machine, taking an unsafe backup while an extract refresh is running would fail.

Images in subscription emails were being cached by email clients, which would cause the old image to be displayed rather than the updated image.

Implemented a security patch to the REXML parser in Ruby on Rails to protect against Denial-of-service (DoS) attacks.

Connections to multidimensional (cube) data sources would omit dimensions with a single hierarchy from the Data window on the web.

Implemented a security patch for Ruby on Rails that corrects how it handles newline (\n) characters in Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), which will prevent remote attackers from conducting cross-site scripting attacks using CSS.

Downloading workbooks with a live connection to Google BigQuery and an active extract would fail.

Implemented a security patch to Ruby on Rails that updates the Java XML Parsing to use web defined standards, which prevents remote attackers from reading arbitrary files or causing a Denial-of-service (DoS).

Images on dashboards that were center aligned would appear left aligned when published to Tableau Server.

Parameter values would not always show the Display as value when viewed on the web.

Tooltips would not display when they contained a field that had a greater than (>) or less than (

Optimized performance to decrease the amount of time it takes to open the Users list as an administrator.

Using parameters to switch between multiple map views in the same layout container on a published dashboard would not resize the map views correctly.

Extract refreshes for text files would fail if the original text file and the extract file were stored in the same directory.

Exporting a crosstab of the View Performance History admin view would cause the VizQL Server process to unexpectedly exit.

Restarting the server while an extract refresh is running would result in the refresh incorrectly showing as successful in the Background Tasks administrative view.

Turning off Automatic Updates on a view would cause the Refresh Data option to no longer work.

Restarting the server while an extract refresh is running would result in the refresh incorrectly showing as successful in the Background Tasks administrative view.

Certain workbooks would fail to publish with a No session context defined error.

Favorites were not working in Internet Explorer 7, 8, and 9 on servers that had Security Support Provider Interface (SSPI) enabled.

For servers configured to use trusted authentication, the Custom Views (Remember my changes) feature is now enabled. In addition, on these servers, the Save and Save As options are now available after editing a workbook on the server.

Text tables that include multiple dimensions on the Rows and Columns shelves would inconsistently show ellipses to indicate more text marks that did not fit in the view.

Refreshing very large extracts could fail with a The system cannot find the path specified error.

In specific environments where a web server and Tableau Server were running on the same machine, some JavaScript APIs were not working consistently in Internet Explorer 9 and 10.

Bubble marks for small values were not sized proportionately because a minimum bubble size was enforced. This minimum has been removed so that smaller values are represented correctly. Negative values are indicated in the Special Values Indicator and zero values map to a zero size so they are not shown in the view.
