An error occurred when publishing the data source.
Operation timed out.
The size of the extract is around 400MB (not over 2 gb which causes the timeout as described here Timeout Occurs When Publishing or Downloading Extract | Tableau Software )
I tried uploading a 1mb file as test and it does publish but not the 400mb one.
Also I tired to change the firewall config as here Operation timed out while publishing workbook
