Hi Irfan Mohammed,
This error is most commonly encountered when a Tableau Desktop user publishes a workbook that uses a data source that is local to their computer or is otherwise inaccessible by Tableau Server. Please follow the steps below to correct this issue:
1) Ensure you have placed the original data source file (in your case the text file) in a network location.
2) Verify that both the Tableau Desktop user and the Tableau Server 'Server Account' can access using a UNC file path.
3) Use this UNC path in the data connection for this file in Tableau Desktop.
4) Save the file in desktop and republish the workbook to Tableau Server
Hope this helps!
What version of Desktop and server is in use Irfan? I encountered this error several versions ago related to Google Analytics connections and it may just be that an update to a later version will fix the problem as well. You should be receiving a prompt to embed your credentials.
My data source is google analytics and not a file.
We are on Tableau server 9.3.1. Initially when I was unable to connect to internet from my server, I wasnt able to create a google analytics connection. Now that I am able to connect to internet and able to connect to google analytics and create required extract, I am not able to publish the same to the server. Is there any kind of bug in Tableau w.r.t google analytics connectivity?
If this is still an issue, I would contact Tableau Support and let them know what version of Tableau Desktop and Server are in use. They may also need log files. Also, do you know if all users are experiencing this issue?
