I'm having an issue with the Publish to Tableau server tool version 2.0.0 (using Alteryx 2018.2 and Tableau server 2018.1)
I've installed it from the official gallery. I've signed in to the Tableau server without problem, then went to the "Configure Data Source" part. I can see the projects, I can enter a data source name, choose the output options and data source format . everything is fine. When I validate, I get an error message "Select an existing project".
Of course the workflow won't run.. but I can't access the configuration anymore. There is a spinning circle that never stops and the configuration panel is not accessible. All I can do is deleting the object from the workflow.
I've installed previous versions of the tool. So just after dropping it on my canvas, I can right click and select the version (1.09.2 or 1.08.1). Both versions work and allow me to publish to the server, in .tde or .hyper, which is what I want...
Maybe a next version will solve this issue, but if there is a solution to it, I would be interested in knowing it.
Not that I am aware of. However the older version did work for me (1.09.2).
When downloading the tool you can choose which version you would like to download and install. Select and install 1.09.2. You can have multiple versions installed. In your flow right click the publish to tableau tool and just above open macro you have the 'choose tool version' option. You can select 1.09.2 there.
When I checked with Alteryx dev team, they said "Yes, the customer should revert to a previous version of the Publish to Tableau tool. A defect (DE16655) is being worked on to fix the issue, but we don't have an ETA on that.”
You can follow my instructions earlier in this post on how to do that.
Any update on a solution from Alteryx? The latest version of the tool has the ability to reference previous Tableau data source metadata when overwriting a previous data source and will definitely be excited to use that feature once the tool is stable.
I tried today. I can configure the connection to the server and then select the project, data source, output options and format. But when I validate the tool, I got the same error "select an existing project" under the tool icon on the canvas. And when I try to get back to the configuration, it doesn't wok :
I must say that it's boring. Working more and more with Tableau server, this is becoming a real limitation.
