    Tableau Publishing Issue with Spark SQL

    Pritam Padhee

      Environment

      1. Tableau Desktop - 9.0 (and 9.3)
      2. Tableau Server - 9.3
      3. Data Source - Tables in HDFS
      4. Connection Type - Spark SQL (Using Spark Thrift Server)

       

      Here is the following scenario.

       

      1. Tableau connects to Spark SQL.
      2. A tableau workbook is created and tested in Tableau Desktop 9.0 (tried this with Tableau Desktop 9.3 as well).
      3. The workbook is published along with the data source to the Tableau Server 9.3.
      4. The workbook and data source can both be seen in Tableau Server.
      5. But the workbook won't open.

       

      Error Message Displayed

       

      An unexpected error occurred. If you continue to receive this error please contact your Tableau Server Administrator.

       

      Field <FIeld Name>', which is included in a join clause, does not exist. Unable to connect to the server "<Cluster Name>".

      Check that the server is running and that you have access privileges to the requested database.
