Site Import / Export failed displaying following error message:
"ERROR: "org.springframework.orm.jpa.JpaSystemException: org.hibernate.TransactionException: commit failed; nested exception is javax.persistence.PersistenceException: org.hibernate.TransactionException: commit failed."


Tableau Server


Use the following workaround:

  1. Correct the user mapping file to include the missing .com on the email domain.
  2. Add the local user account on the server before trying to add in Tableau Server import.


This behavior is related to a known issue (ID: 706291) which is currently under investigation.

Either one of these can cause the commit failed error:
  1. User was missing the .com on the email domain in the user mapping file.
  2. The local user did not have an account created for them on the server yet.
