    Updated Data Source in Tableau Server not refreshing in workbooks

      Hi,

       

      I've just been updating a series of Data Sources, republishing them to Tableau Server.  The extent of the change that I've made is to edit a manual sort on a dimension field, since some Workbooks which connected to the Data Sources used filters on them and the sort order was wrong.

       

      Now when I build a new workbook using the published data source, I can see my new sort order working as expected.  I can also login to Tableau Server and look at the list of Data Sources and confirm that they were updated by me at the times I did so.

       

      Yet, for some reason the Workbooks in Tableau Server haven't dynamically adopted this new sort order.  Do they also need to be revised and republished?  It seems a little crazy to have to go through the same step for both the Data Source and the Workbook.

       

      What have I missed?

       

      Much love!
