    Tableau Server: publication problem



      I have a strange problem when publishing one report. I've received the following error message.


      "Session Ended by Serverx An unexpected error occurred on the server. If you continue to receive this error please contact your Tableau Server Administrator.


        "Invalid field formula due to limitations in the data source."


      Would you like to reset the view?



      The context is: one column was added in a sql view used as a datasource. I've added the column to an existing report. and then when I want to publish I receive the error message.


      Any idea ?


      Thank for your help...

          Hi Clement,


          What is meant by "one column was added in a sql view used as a datasource"? Is this new column being added to the actual data source or is it being added to a view in the workbook?


          Would it be possible to post the workbook (twbx file)?

            Hi Tracy,


            So here is what has happened:

            -One table in the database was modified by adding new columns.

            -I've modified my sql view to add this new field.

            -In Tableau Desktop I've added the column to one view/report. Everything was fine

            -I tried to publish in server and then I had the error message.


            I solved the problem by rebooting tableau server. Not super elegant but well it works...


            But If you have any advices to avoid that please feel free...
