    Tableau Server Admin - Workbooks Showing Alerts

    danielle.weaver

      Hi,

       

      I have discovered that some of my workbooks on our Tableau 9.0.3 Server have recently started showing an orange Alert icon. When I click on the icon no message displays to show why the alerts are displaying. No Alerts appear in the top menu of the admin page either.

      I have checked every data source that each of these workbooks use and none of the actual data sources are displaying any alert icons beside them, only the workbooks.

       

      They are all using data sources that are live connections (they are not running off extracts), and some have subscriptions and some don't.

       

      The workbooks still seem to run perfectly fine though...

       

      Any ideas on how I can troubleshoot the reason why these workbooks are showing alerts would be greatly appreciated.

       

       

      Thanks,

      Danielle
