    TABCMD Error: 407 Proxy Authentication Required

    Leandro Guimaraes

      Hello,

      We have a problem to publish a datasource to a Tableau Server instance outside our corporate network.

      Context: Our network only permits internet access via proxy, with AD authentication. Thus, we need to publish the datasource via proxy.

      The TABCMD has a parameter for proxy (-x, --proxy), but it only takes Host:Port. There's no option to provide proxy authentication to TABCMD.

      The script we're using:

       

      $tabcmd="C:\Program Files\Tableau\Tableau Server\2018.1\extras\Command Line Utility\tabcmd.exe"

      $File="C:\Users\testes\Extracts\fonte_teste.tdsx

      $server="https://qtableau.externo.com.br"

      $site="Externo"

      $Projeto="Teste"

      $user="user"

      $pass="pass"

      $cert="--no-certcheck"

      $cmd="publish"

       

      & $tabcmd $cmd $File -n "fonte_teste" -s $server -t $site -x 192.168.0.1:3128 -r $Projeto -u $user -p $pass $cert

       

       

      So when we execute the command, it returns the following error:

      tabcmd.exe :   *** 407 Proxy Authentication Required

       

      Is it possible to pass proxy authentication to tabcmd, or another workaround to this situation?
