Hello Michael Cohen,
Please review the version of Tableau in use. There is a known Google Big Query issue resolved by version 8.2.3. The error message returned is not identical to the one in the KB article however I see other reported error messages resolved by upgrading to the latest version of Tableau.
I hope this helps.
We are running into a similar issue. Whenever we load a dashboard it throws an unknown server error and the error is very inconsistent. Sometimes when I refresh the page, it goes away but sometimes it doesn't. We have not been able to figure out why this is happening. Here is the screenshot:
Can you please help?
Tripti, what is your server version?
We are on 8.2.0 right now but soon upgrading to 8.2.7
Why not go to the latest version which is 8.3.2? I'm betting this will be the last solid version until 9.0 comes out. Any 8.3.x versions will be minor and likely not affect most folks.
I think you should revisit this after your upgrade. Given the error we would need to know what your data source is, how you're connecting to it (ODBC or natively through Tableau), are you using Custom SQL or not, and your Tableau Server version (remember, upgrade Server first).
