    Tableau Server Admin View Workbooks 2019




      I've come across posts for older versions of the server admin view workbooks but haven't found anything for the 2019.1 versions yet.  Anyone have any leads?


      Thanks in advance!

          Hi James,


          are you looking for custom admin view or pre admin views ?

            The pre-built, I believe I got a work around, I did the same trick as someone else posted for version 10, which is to generate the view then find the temp workbook file on the server:


            For anyone who is interested on the linux side, I did find the temp workbook in:


            directory: /data/tableau/tableau_server/data/tabsvc/temp/vizqlserver_0.20191.19.0215.0259/

            filename: tabbed admin views7168224975693625121twb


            I then published the file using 'tabcmd publish'.


            Let me know if there is an easier way?  Thanks!

              Hi James,

              you've pretty much figured it out.


              A temporary workbook is created when you open on of the pre-built admin views and saved in your data directory, by default:

              • C:\ProgramData\Tableau\Tableau Server\data\tabsvc\temp\vizqlserver_<n>.<version_code>
                In 2018.2 or later Tableau Server on Windows
              • /var/opt/tableau/tableau_server/data/tabsvc/temp/vizqlserver_<n>.<version_code>
                in 10.5 or later Tableau Server on Linux:


              With a name similar to "tabbed admin views416408957258362446twb"


              You can copy that temporary workbook to another location and open it with Tableau Desktop, publish it to Tableau Server, and use it as a starting point for other custom admin views.


              I'm adding a bit of information in our Online Help related to this, to make it easier to find the workbooks.


              Best regards,
