    PDF extraction through tabcmd stopped working

    Henry Neira

      Hi,

       

      We have been using for the last month Tableau commands (tabcmd) to generate a pdf from a dashboard and download it. However yesterday it stopped working and we can't figure out why, we haven't done any changes to the dashboard and are still facing the following error:

       

      *** Failed to create a VizQl session on the server

       

      Command line version: 10.1

      This is the code that we are using that has been working until yesterday:

       

      tabcmd login -s https://10ay.online.tableau.com -u ***** -p ******

      tabcmd export "Daily_Billing_Dashboard_v2/Dashboard" --fullpdf -f "C:\Program Files\Tableau\Tableau Server\10.1\extras\Command Line Utility\Daily_Billing_dashboard.pdf"

      tabcmd logout

       

      Below is the complete logs that I receive when using the command line. Can you help me? Thanks.
