    tabcmd login with Tableau Online

    Jill Honrade

      Our company has recently deployed a Tableau Online server. We are looking to use tabcmd to help automate some of our admin tasks. However, we are blocked by the tabcmd login command (in order to create a session with Tableau Online and run other tabcmd commands).


      We keep receiving a "Uncaught exception RuntimeException: java.net.SocketException: Connection reset" error.


      We are using tabcmd v2018.2, running the command line utility as an administrator, and using a local Tableau Online account.

      This is an example of the command we are running: tabcmd login -s https://online.tableau.com -t <site name> -u <username> -p <password>

      We also tried using other server and site name combinations, other usernames, etc. All seem to receive the same error.


      Has anyone else run into this error and was able to resolve it?

      Or does anyone have any insight on how to properly use the tabcmd login command to connect to Tableau Online.
