    Loosing folders when getting local copy of a published datasource

    Bertrand DOURNON



      I am working on a dashboard plugged to a datamart that evolve regularly and I am experiencing an annoying anomaly when downloading a local copy of the published datasources. All the defined folders are lost in the local copy of the datasource. And I have to redefine them all each time I have to adapt the datasource.


      Here are the folowed steps :

      1- Build up an Oracle datasource

      2- Define dimensions and measures folders

      3- Build dashboards

      4- Publish workbook and datasource to the server

      5- Download local copy of the published datasource

      => Folders are lost


      Does anyone experiencing the same ?


      Thank you in advance for your feedback and help

      Best regards

          Hello Bertrand,


          That has not occurred for me in my testing with 10.5.3 Tableau Server and Tableau Desktop versions. Can you provide a little more detail on the versions that are being used? My data source folders are maintained as expected.


          Another troubleshooting step I would be curious to see is to have the data source donwloaded from the sever as a .tdsx and opened in Tableau Desktop does it exhibit the same behavior?


          Hope this helps!
