    Struggling with exporting .pdf dashboards with tabcmd.exe

    Rodrigo Roscoe

      Hey everyone!

       

      I'm relatively new to Tableau, so please bear with me if I'm asking a dumb question

       

      I've been trying to come up with a way to export my dashboards to .pdf files and automatize their forwarding through email, and I found many people recommending using tabcmd.exe and febootimail. I downloaded and installed those apps successfully.

       

      However, when I try to export one of my dashboards using tabcmd, I can only export it successfully if I don't specify the .pdf extension. Below are the commands I've been using:

       

      - Without specifying the .pdf extension:

      C:\Program Files\Tableau\Tableau Server\8.2\extras\Command Line Utility>tabcmd.exe get "/views/VORSaleInProgress/VORAgingReport"

      ===== Continuing previous session

      =====     Server:   http://whqtableau:80/

      =====     Username: CORP\svcTableau

      ===== Requesting /views/VORSaleInProgress/VORAgingReport from server...

      ===== Saved views/VORSaleInProgress/VORAgingReport to C:/Program Files/Tableau/T

      ableau Server/8.2/extras/Command Line Utility/VORAgingReport.

      ===== Succeeded

       

      - Specifying the .pdf extension:

      C:\Program Files\Tableau\Tableau Server\8.2\extras\Command Line Utility>tabcmd.exe get "/views/VORSaleInProgress/VORAgingReport.pdf"

      ===== Continuing previous session

      =====     Server:   http://whqtableau:80/

      =====     Username: CORP\svcTableau

      ===== Requesting /views/VORSaleInProgress/VORAgingReport.pdf from server...

        *** 500 "Internal Server Error"

       

      Do I have to do anything to the report, so the command can export the .pdf file?

       

      Thanks in advance!

       

      Regards,

      Rodrigo Roscoe
