I’m trying to update some of the data connections for my workbooks in Tableau Server. Some of the Data Connections, I’m able to update successfully. But some of them it gives me below error message:
“Attempted to update a stale object: Workbook”.
What does this means and how do I overcome it?
Not 100% sure, but this may be a known bug. The bug in question occurs when you attempt to update multiple data connections at the same time (which it appears you are doing).
Can you try updating one connection at a time and see if it works? That will allow you to get your work done until the fix makes it into the next release.
