Sounds fishy. Did you check you published to the correct workbook name etc? There can also be some caching that occurs on the server side for some views. restarting the server and/or cleaning the logs on the server may help? I haven't had this happen before, but just a thought.
Yeah tried all of those things, even published the workbook to a different server and it still failed
Have raised a ticket with support to see if they have any ideas.
Was there a resolution to this problem? I'm experiencing the same thing.
I am experiencing the same thing. Does anyone have a solution?
Has anyone found a solution to this problem? cheers.
firstname.lastname@example.org is the address for Tableau support.
Parameter lists will not dynamically update--they are static lists; that part is expected behavior. But whatever values are selected for the parameter at the time you publish should be displayed by default once the report is published and viewable on the Server.
We'd need a lot more information from the folks posting in this thread to be able to determine what is causing your issues. Please provide more details, and an example packaged workbook, if you are struggling with a problem. I'd also suggest opening a new thread, with far more detail, in order to get the best help possible on this Forum.
Yup. Before filing support calls, make sure there is really a problem.
From my scan of the thread I'm imagining something like this:
Publish a workbook.
Edit it more. Change some parameter settings via testing, etc.
Publish it again.
I would expect for users to see whatever parameter settings I had upon my last SAVE in Desktop before I re-published it. And they would see those same settings each time they re-visited the published workbook.
If you edited in Desktop and saved, and some of those changes included changes to the parameters (such as max/min values, initial values, etc.) and if those changes are not reflected in the published workbook, then that merits a support call.
In that case, create a packaged workbook demonstrating the issue and send it along with the support request.
I don't believe a save is even necessary--once changes are made, and the data/parameters update, a publish should overrride any settings on a published workbook. Probably a good idea to save, but I don't believe its required.
I experienced this as well. Using Tableau Desktop 8.2. I re-published an existing workbook after making several changes to layout containers on a Dashboard. Inexplicably the parameter control was now blank, whereas before it offered one of two possible selections.
I re-published with a dummy sheet, using the same parameter. In the re-publish, the sheet with the parameter was fine, and the parameter control on the dashboard remained blank.
I finally solved the problem by entirely rebuilding the dashboard in the same workbook and re-publishing.
Consider this. On the problem dashboard, remove the parameter entirely. Then for one of the sheets that use the parameter, re-activate it (Note: I haven't figured out Tableau's "thinking" when I add a parameter to a sheet this way. Sometimes it tiles the parameter on the bottom-most cntainer. Sometimes it adds it to a floating container, and which one it chooses is inexplicable to me. But once you find where tableau puts it, you can move it to wherever you really need it.)
See if removal and re-insertion fixes your issue.
