do you have a workbook called abc.twbx? the 302 may indicate that it can't find that workbook. Also, is it on the default site?
Thank you for your reply. Yes my worksheet is called abc . I am not sure I thought it was finding it since I am not seeing a 404 error, which I have when not typing name correctly. My workbook is in a 'project' called Default.. Not sure if this is what you are referring to?
Thank you for your reply Jeffrey. I do have a workbook called abc. I have also tried without the .tbwx. It is in a project called ‘Default’. I am not sure if this is what you are asking. It does not produce a 404 error, which is what is received when I incorrectly type the file name.

do you have multiple sites within your Tableau server?
I do not believe so, but how do I determine this for certain? Our old admin left the company.
Also I am able to use commands such as the following and they are successful.
tabcmd refreshextracts --server http://server --username username
password PWproject "default" --workbook "abc"
It is the previous command that I am having an issue with, so I am thinking Tabcmd is finding the site, etc.
when you login to tableau server, does it prompt you for which site to login to? If not, then it's probably a single site deployment.
Also, do you happen to know if your admin deployed with SSL or https turned on? this could be another possibility of the 302 error and maybe resolved if you add --no-certcheck onto the end of the tabcmd.
Hi – thanks again for your replies. I am not prompted, so I am assuming we are a single site.
I also do not know if they did use ssl or https, but I did try the command with the --no-certcheck option and received the same error.
I did also try the following command, just for fun ‘tabcmd export “Test/DS.pdf” –fullpdf’
and I received a different error at least ☺ - This one stated ‘***Failed to create a VizQ session on the server’
I am not sure if this gives any indication as to the underlying issue?
Also I am able to download the workbook itself using the Download button from Tableau Server using Google Chrome, however when I attempt to use IE I receive an xml parsing error and the workbook will not open. Again I am not sure how or if these are related.
sorry none of my suggestions have panned out. the id that you login with on tabcmd, does it have permission to download the workbook? also, try changing it from twbx to twb just to see what this does.
I appreciate your help. I am using the correct syntax though right? I just want to verify. I have server admin permissions and it is this id I am downloading with. When I check the workbooks permissions, the id has download privileges.
I believe it is finding the correct workbook from my command, however it is redirecting. For example, when I am hovering over the workbook named ‘Test’ in Tableau Server or when I click on it and go to the URL, it shows http://server/workbooks/55/views rather than http://server/workbooks/Test/views. When the 302 error appears this is the exact URL displayed.
This changes for each workbook –. For abc - it is http://server/workbooks/57/views and is the same on the server as well as in the error. I have tried to use these numbers instead of the workbook names, but this doesn’t help.
Is this normal behavior or could something be causing it to redirect on our environment only?
Ok – well I understood you could install and run TabCmd Anywhere as it says in the documentation. Apparently this is not the case. I finally decided to just install on our Tableau server, which we were trying to avoid and VOILA ! I am not sure why this was happening still and would rather not have it on our server, but at least I have a file!
Thanks for your help!
well, I'm glad you got it working. We run tabcmd get all the time, but do it within the server environment so that perhaps explains why we haven't seen the 302 error.
I'm coming back to this thread over and over again when I google around on a solution to my issue, my "302 Found" error.
I only have one instance and tabcmd running on the server itself.
Here's the output I get:
tabcmd get "/views/ClickAnalysis/ClickAnalysis.twbx" -f "C:\Users\tableau\clickanalyssi.twbx"
===== Continuing previous session
===== Server: http://tableauserver.com:80
===== Username: reports
===== Requesting '/views/ClickAnalysis/ClickAnalysis.twbx' from the server...
===== redirecting to http://tableauserver.com/#/views/ClickAnalysis/ClickAnalysis%2etwbx
*** 302 Found
Eg. are there any place where can I get additional logging from the get command?
