Resolved Issues

Issue ID Description
91459

Corrected a security vulnerability in the data server.

83095

Changes made to a published data source would intermittently not be reflected when accessing the data source using Edit on Tableau Server. Opening the data source in Tableau Desktop would show the changes correctly.

93664

Resolved a privately reported blind SQL injection vulnerability in Tableau Server. The vulnerability could have allowed arbitrary SQL commands to be passed to the Tableau Server backend database for execution. An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could have taken complete control of an instance of Tableau Server. An attacker would have needed valid credentials or the guest account would have had to have been enabled to exploit this vulnerability. This vulnerability is rated Critical for 8.0.x and 8.1.x versions of Tableau Server, and customers are urged to upgrade at their earliest opportunity. Tableau has not received any information to indicate that this vulnerability has been publicly used to attack customers at the time this update was released. Tableau would like to thank Tanya Secker and Christiaan Esterhuizen of Trustwave SpiderLabs for identifying and reporting this issue (CVE-2014-1204) and for working with us to help protect our customers.

93209

Corrected a security vulnerability in the Tableau Server permission functionality.

93027

Tableau Server users were not able to select All in a single value filter without first selecting another value.

92069

Restoring a Tableau Server backup file (.tsbak) sometimes resulted in user groups being duplicated and renamed.

92029

Workbooks sometimes appeared to have missing data after Tableau Server was upgraded from version 7.0 to version 8.0 and extract refreshes were performed.

90887

Tableau Server would stop working if a user filtered on a view and that view contained a discrete exact date field.

89382

Hive Server 2 extracts published to Tableau Server would fail with an error of the following type: "Error occurred while initializing the Hive client." The problem would occur when Kerberos tickets were being used.

88783

An indefinite spinner would display when accessing a view that was embedded via an Iframe, used trusted tickets, had the embed parameter set to no, and which prompted the user to authenticate.

88078

On Tableau Server, users who have published or created workbooks or created projects retain publishing rights until they are no longer the project or workbook publisher. However, when a site or system administrator tries to deny such users publishing rights (which should not be possible), a message would appear saying "1 user denied publishing." The Permissions menu would continue to correctly show that these users as having publishing rights.

84854

If a cube data source is published to Tableau Server with no username credential and is configured to prompt for credentials, signing in to the data source would eventually fail with an error of this type: "Database error 0x80004005: Errors in the OLE DB provider. Could not connect to the redirector. Ensure that the SQLBrowser service is running on the server."

82991

Attempting to create a backup of a two-machine Tableau Server cluster in which the primary was running Windows Server 2008 (pre R2) would fail with the following error: "Skipping backup since is user maintained and distinct from ."

After upgrading to version 8.0.x from version 7.0.x, some workbooks were performing slower when making filter selections.

85317

Interacting with some views on Tableau Server would sometimes result in a "Tableau Data Engine Error 4: no such schema (TableauTemp)" error. This error was caused when there was heavy load on the query cache and the cache had to be rebuilt.

83786

Opening particular workbooks that contained dashboards with multiple worksheets using the same blended data sources could cause Tableau Server to become unresponsive.

Published views and dashboards that were multi-page would not always display all rows.

92768

Holding down the shift key and clicking did not select multiple items in filters, as expected.

92746

The background task server process would sometimes stop working.

90811

The data server process would sometimes join tables incorrectly.

88171

When Tableau Server was configured to perform SQL Server impersonation, a "Session ended by server" error message would sometimes display when a user attempted to open a workbook.

82744

Embedded Tableau Server views wouldn't render correctly when they used a fixed size and the HTML page in which they were embedded was designed to initially hide, then display the view.
