Resolved Issues

Issue ID Description

Editing views sometimes caused a 403 error.

In workbooks that contain many sheets, scrolling to see the sheet name on the sheet drop-down menu on Tableau Server would make the last sheets in the list unselectable in Firefox and Internet Explorer 10 web browsers.

When connected to either Microsoft Analysis Services or extract based data sources, filter actions, and tooltips that contained long dimension and measure values would be truncated when viewed in a browser.

81407

Opening the PDF version of a published workbook and appending “?:format=pdf” to the URL sometimes resulted in a blank view.

In a published workbook, selecting an item on a quick filter caused the filter scrollbar to return to scroll to the top.

Searching a Multiple Value List quick filter caused error 502 or 503.

Exporting a dashboard as a PNG image created an image truncated to the size of the browser window.

When working with a published dashboard that contained an unpublished underlying worksheet, saving the underlying worksheet caused the browser to navigate to the Views list instead of back to the dashboard.

87657

When editing a workbook that contained more than one Single Value quick filter, selecting a value for the first filter, and then selecting a value for another filter caused an incorrect value to be displayed in the first filter.

Clearing the Enable subscriptions option on the Admin > Sites > Edit Site page, and then clicking OK did not save the setting and had no effect on the Server.

89487

In a published workbook, moving the cursor over items in a Single Value (Dropdown) quick filter did not highlight the items.

When editing a workbook in Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or a newer version of Internet Explorer, clicking Show Me, and then selecting Treemap or Bubble Chart caused a 404 error.

Editing and then saving workbooks on the web that were connected to Google BigQuery caused the error “RuntimeException: This workbook contains a Google BigQuery data source that requires embedded credentials.”

When editing a view on the web, opening a submenu from a field menu, then clicking the broser "back" button caused the field menu to stop responding.

56901

The Show Activity action in the User Activity administrative view caused the error "Sorry, the view you were looking for does not exist, or you do not have permission to see that view."

81226

Using a highlight action across multiple views in a dashboard would incorrectly highlight all of the target views.

81017

When using a core-based license, starting Tableau Server took a long time. This was due to a license registration check performed before the database started.

69895

In the Customized Views administrative view, the customized view hyperlink would display in the tooltip and then disappear.

82034

Improved session safety when using trusted authentication.

88923

A tooltip that was wider than the view caused scrollbars to display in the view.

The time it took to set the parameters via the JavaScript API was too long.

Using the Measure Values and Measure Names fields caused the view to render slowly.

84656

In a published workbook, row heading text overlapped row separator lines.

79172

In a published workbook, the color that you set for the pane of a worksheet was also displayed in the column and row headers.

87774

Firewall software would block the browser request when interacting with a view on Tableau Server. This was due to Tableau Server using MIME boundary delimiters longer than the allowed limit of 70 characters.

Pausing automatic updates in a published workbook, making a change to a parameter, and then resuming automatic updates sometimes caused a browser processing error followed by a “session ended by server” error.

When viewing a workbook that had multiple worksheets, clicking a filter action that pointed to other worksheets loaded the worksheet but did not update the browser’s tab name.
