Resolved Issues

Issue ID Description

Internal error when opening workbook


Web Authoring functionality is not working with trusted ticket authentication. The URL to open a view in Web Edit mode works, however any action such as dragging a field into or out of view causes a redirect to Tableau Server sign in page.


Custom geocoding was not always applied when published from a computer using a Japanese language operating system.


Dashboards with "automatic" layout size, nested layout containers and subtotals displayed as blank in maximized browser windows.


Changing the default layout from list to thumbnail or vice versa did not save when using "Make This my Start Page".


When using a Chinese, Japanese, or Korean locale in Tableau Server on Linux, after you changed a date and time parameter value, the parameter reverted back to the previous value.


MSAS datasources published with "Prompt User" credentials continually prompted for credentials when accessed from an non-Administrator account.


After upgrading to or installing Tableau Server 2018.2, sometimes logs grew quickly and filled available disk space.


Sometimes, installing Tableau Server 2018.2 failed with an "Initialization terminated at step 5 of 40: An error occurred while waiting for services to reconfigure." message.


Hyper crashes due to invalid expression extraction.


In Tableau 2018.3, sometimes maps using custom polygons appeared distorted, inverted, or rendered as a single color box.


Upgrading from Tableau Server 2018.1 and earlier versions to 2018.2 and newer versions failed with an "InstallerException: Unable to login" error when the TSM admin password contained an exclamation point (!).


When running a backup, the following error sometimes occurred, "Did not parse exactly one backup result, got 0."
