    Alert Deletion on Tableau Server When Data Source is Updated

    Brian Donaldson



      I'm working with the Alerting feature in Tableau Online that is connected to data sources via Tableau Server and want to understand what would cause a previously created alert to be deleted.


      1. We are using both live and extracted data sources, and I understand that removing any data source or the data an alert is based on would remove these alerts.  Will changing a live data source (i.e. adding a new unrelated dimension or measure or deleting an unrelated dimension/measure) cause these alerts to be removed.

      2. If we are using an extract, would a change to the underlying data source (but not a change to a dimension or measure that is related to an established alert) cause the alert to be removed?


      Any information is greatly appreciated.
