    Removing Incremental Refresh

    Hugh Prysten

      We are having trouble removing incremental refreshes from Tableau Online extracts as they keep getting reapplied by the scheduled refresh.

       

      Here are our steps we follow..

       

      1. Create a local copy in desktop
      2. Edit the data source
      3. Remove the incremental refresh
      4. Re-publish the data source
      5. Close desktop and reconnect to the data source through Tableau Server to confirm it's not incremental anymore...

       

      However, when a Tableau Server scheduled refresh processes, it reapplies the incremental refresh onto the data source. The scheduled refresh is set to full refresh which we have tried removing and re-adding.  We have also tried removing the extract and re-creating the extract but that didn't work either.

       

      How can we prevent this from happening?

       

      Best,

      Hugh
