Release Notes for Tableau 8.2.9

Resolved Issues

Issue ID Description

When workbooks with a horizontal scroll bar were published to Tableau Server, charts could be truncated at the bottom.


When an extract was missing, the workbook would fall back to a live connection.


Importing large workbooks to a .CSV file by using tabcmd caused the error: “Tableau Server (Version ) encountered an error while working with this worksheet.”


Exporting a workbook to PDF caused a large "Show History" check box to show over the page control on the upper-right corner of the PDF.


Exporting a dashboard to PDF sometimes did not retain the Layout setting selected in the Export PDF dialog box.


The Reap Extracts task sometimes ran while a backup was being done using “tabadmin backup”, resulting in possible missing extracts if the backup was used for a manual restore or an upgrade.


The initial dashboard render for a workbook with relevant-value quick filters waited unnecessarily for acceleration view queries to complete and sometimes timed out.


Relative to Now quick filters showed incorrect time when configured for Last N hours or Last N minutes.


In Tableau Desktop, opening multiple instances of a workbook that is published to Tableau Server displayed incorrect workbook names, beginning with the second instance of the workbook.


When row and column axes have different formats, Tableau Server displayed only one of the formats for both axes.


Refreshing the browser two or more times when working with a published view with a multiple value filter disabled the Revert All button.


Using client-side rendering caused the second line of text in some tooltips to become truncated.


When publishing a workbook with a Google Analytics extract, you were asked to provide credentials even if you chose not to embed credentials.


When the browser window was shrunk to a very small size and then returned to the original size, filter names remained truncated instead of showing full text.


When exporting a view to PDF from Tableau Server, legends appeared in the PDF export even though the legend card was hidden in the view.


Active Directory synchronization of large groups was causing system instability with multiple errors including "Tableau Server encountered an internal error " while managing sites, "Your session has expired. Do you want to log on again?" while administering groups, and "Forbidden Action" and "Unexpected Server Error" on the Background Tasks page.
