    Locating Tableau Server Log Files

    Mark Fraser

      Hi all


      I'm fairly new to Tableau Server and tried for the first time to locate the log files (reason - failed installation).

      I found them but it wasn't obvious, so I thought I'd share, just in case someone in the future has the same problem...


      This is the Tableau article >> Server Log File Locations

      And the file path for the logs is >> C:\ProgramData\Tableau\Tableau Server\data\tabsvc\logs


      IMPORTANT: 'Program data' is a hidden folder and may not be visible.

      To open the folder, the easiest thing I found (on Windows) was -

      1) Copy this - C:\ProgramData\Tableau\Tableau Server

      Press the Start Button

      Paste into the search bar

      Press Enter


      You should now have the folder open and can find the log files in there.


      Hope its helpful!!
