Resolved Issues

Issue ID Description

When you attempted to access a workbook view that was published with embedded credentials from a Teradata OLAP connector, you were sometimes prompted for credentials and the view might never load.


After an administrator changed Tableau Server to use SAML for authentication, if a Tableau Desktop user opened a workbook from Tableau Server by clicking a thumbnail, the user was shown a sign-in dialog box in which the Server field was unavailable. Entering credentials resulted in a "Username/password incorrect" error.


Some non-alphanumeric characters in the Run As User account password resulted in errors when the Kerberos configuration script was run. This prevented a successful Kerberos configuration. As a workaround, the administrator could manually add quotes around the password in the Kerberos script.


The "tabadmin warmup" command only worked if the primary server was configured with a gateway process.


When you exported a published workbook as PDF, the page size didn’t use the value specified in the Server PDF Export dialog box. Multiple exports sometimes had different page sizes or orientations.


When exporting a dashboard from Tableau Server to a PDF or image file, extra lines appeared near the top of the view.


After you upgraded Tableau Server, the subscription icon for published views no longer appeared.


Dashboard colors intermittently reverted to a default color palette.


Version 9: If the Search & Browse index was not fully indexed, alerts could be inconsistent or erroneously reporting problems (for example, failed extract refresh on a workbook that does not include an extract). Workaround: Restart Tableau Server to allow the index to be rebuilt. The index is automatically rebuild when Tableau Server starts. For more information, see the Tableau Knowledge Base.


Version 9.0: When you upgraded a distributed installation with a data engine on more than one node, the upgrade process left original (unmigrated) extracts on the second data engine node after the upgrade was complete. For more information, see the Tableau Knowledge Base.


Version 9.0: When a site administrator ran a schedule (clicked on Run Now on the Schedules tab), all subscriptions on that schedule were run, including those for other sites on the server. This could cause extra email notifications and extra load on the server due to running multiple subscriptions.


Version 9.0: Attempting to edit a published view when the view name included special characters (like a space) resulted in the error: "VizPortal Error: {"code":80039}".


Version 9.0: The Publish Workbook REST API method did not support publishing with tabs.


Version 9.0: When a port is dynamically remapped at server startup, the entry for the host was not getting updated with the new port information. If this happened a message displayed when Tableau Server started:
"*** Changed filestore.port port(s) from to .
*** Changed filestore.status-port(s) from to .
===== Unable to determine if all compoonents of the service started properly. See "tabadmin.log" for more information"
and some functionality in server was not available (for example, you could not publish a workbook or data source).
For more information, see the Tableau Knowledge Base.


Version 9.0: You could not add an Active Directory user unless you used a fully qualified domain name. For example, adding the user "myco\jsmith" would not add the user, but "\jsmith" would add the user successfully. For more information, see the Tableau Knowledge Base.


Version 9.0: The Query Project method in the REST API required system administrator permissions. As a result, non-administrator users could not query projects.


Version 9.0: When you did a "restore" on a Tableau Server installation with multiple repositories, the backup files were not getting removed. This was an issue with upgrading because the upgrade process uses a restore. To free up the extra disk space used by the unnecessary backup file, after the restore was complete manually delete the \ProgramData\Tableau Server\data\tabsvc\pgsql\data.bak-*. folders. For more information, see the Tableau Knowledge Base.


Version 9.0: If you reused a computer from one Tableau Server installation in a new installation of Tableau Server without fully uninstalling the software, old configuration data could cause connection problems between server nodes and and generate "NoAuth" error messages in the clustercontroller.log file. For more information, see the Tableau Knowledge Base.
