    Can I search for views that use a particular data source? (Tableau 8)

      I have a need to be able identify which of our published views use a particular data source which has also been published on the server, to understand the impact a change to the data source may make.

       

      Is this possible?

       

      I found this article : Search that suggests that the dbname attribute may be what I'm looking for but it doesn't seem to work.  I have a published data source on the server that has a name 'Aged Debt Monthly Snapshot' and a Repository Url property called 'AgedDebtMonthlySnapshot'.  I've tried entering dbname:Aged Debt Monthly Snapshot, dbname:AgedDebtMonthlySnapshot, dbname:"Aged Debt Monthly Snapshot" but nothing returns.

       

      I'm wondering whether the description of the attribute itself is incorrect in that the attribute name suggests a name of database is used,  but the description refers to data source...
