In case anyone else finds themselves on this thread after banging their heads against the wall trying to figure out why Tableau Output Tool works locally but not on the Server.
Got it working with:
- Designer + Server 2022.3
- Tableau Output tool v1.2.0
- You must have DCM SDK set to "Allow All" on the Server machine (screenshot below)
- Workflows must be connecting to Tableau with a DCM connection that is synchronized both on your local machine and the Server. The DCM Data Source must be linked to a Credential that uses the personal authentication token (PAT).
- Note: to synchronize, I went to File > Manage Connections > Synchronize > selected my Gallery > then pressed "Synchronize" in the top-right corner. The sync was bilateral, meaning local DCM sources went to the Server, and Server DCM sources came down to my local machine.
No modifications to registries necessary.
Came across this all here after doing more digging than I'd like to admit.
If you click under the latest Tableau Output tool version (1.2.0, at the time of this writing), you'll see these details listed, along with the current Known Issues.
Not sure what future versions will look like, and not entirely sure on what the security considerations are for setting Allow All on SDK Tools support, but it got the job done for now.
Hope this helps.
