Question

How to check the current values of Tableau Server environment variables.

Environment

Tableau Server

Answer

Current Tableau Server configuration settings can be reviewed in the tabsvc.yml file. The default location for this file is C:\ProgramData\Tableau\Tableau Server\config\tabsvc.yml.

Note: The tabsvc.yml file should only be used to verify the environmental variables. Editing this file manually is not supported and could result in damage to the Tableau Server installation. All changes should be made using the tabadmin set commands.
