    WDCs get hung up in Tableau

    Charles Gowdy

      I am using Tableau v 9.3.1 and attempting to run any of the example WDC's in Tableau. I followed the tutorial for v1 of the simulator/SDK, and I was able to successfully run the example WDC's in the simulator (v1). Once I attempt to run the WDC directly in Tableau it gets hung up during the 'Executing Query' stage, and no data is ever pulled into Tableau.

          Hey Charles,


          Two things to try first to help diagnose the issue:


          1. Are there any errors in the console when you run the connector in the simulator?
          2. Once back in Tableau, can you take a look at the Tableau logs and see if there are any errors?


          For an introduction on how to do both of the things I mentioned above, I would recommend checking out this video on debugging: Debugging Tips & Tricks - YouTube.


          Let me know if that helps!

            Hi Brendan,


            1. I do not receive any errors while debugging in the simulator.

            2. Based on the instructions on the video provided (very helpful, thank you!) I was able to pull the following errors from the Tableau logs (I can't attach a document from my work computer so I've included only the error text for each instance):


            - XMLHttpRequest cannot load http://query.yahooapis.com/v1/public/yqlq.....

            - Origin http://[server name] is not allowed by Access-Control-Allow-Origin

            - WDC:Stock Data for DATA: Connection error

            - Reporting data source exception. Type='WDCAbortError' Message='Error while trying to connect to the Yahoo stock data source.'

            - Network error occurred: Error 5 (Operation canceled)

            - WebDataTupleSource: :FetchMoreRows: Error downloading data: Operation Cancelled
