You say that 'restarting the server actually will solve the problem'. Does that mean that the problem has gone and you are just looking to find out why it occurred? Or do you still have an ongoing issue?
The problem has been solved by restarting, but I want to find out the cause of the problem. I'm afraid it might happen again sometime in the future. I am also wondering if there is any other solution to solve that kinid of problem besides restarting the server.
I have a similar problem.
I have a published data source in Tableau Server. The data source has data source level filters.
I am able to connect to the published data source from desktop but I am not able to see any data. In other words, the published data source is not respecting the data source level filter.
Based on the user who logged, it should display data for that user, but it displays blank page. I think its not reading the logged in username.
Any ideas on resolving this issue ?
Can you test this on the Server itself vs. in Desktop? It's been years since I've looked at this myself, but in the "old days", user filters added to published data sources couldn't be tested from Desktop. In other words, changing the user via the "context" menu drop down won't change the connected users to Data Server.
I'd bet that your filters ARE indeed working in terms of your consumers in the Browser.
That's correct. It works fine from the server.
Our users are able to write reports from the Server. We don't give them the desktop.
I was testing out the published data source from Desktop to see if we can publish a report.
Lesson learned. For reasons I've never understood, a local / embedded data source can be "tested" in Desktop, but not a published data source..
