When you publish workbooks with live connections to Amazon Redshift to Tableau Server, the email subscription icon (the envelope) might not appear on the published views.


  • Tableau Server 8.1.0 - 8.1.7
  • Amazon Redshift


Option 1

Upgrade to Tableau Desktop 8.1.8 or a later version. For more information, see Upgrading Tableau Desktop in Tableau Help

Option 2

  1. Open the workbook in Tableau Desktop.
  2. Navigate to Data > <data source name> > Edit Connection.
  3. In Step 1, select Require SSL, re-establish the connection to the database, and then click OK.

This behavior is a known issue that has been corrected in more recent releases.
