Issue

When using the tabcmd get command to export a workbook, the following error might occur:
"***302 Found"

Environment

Tableau Server

Resolution

Add the file extention (twb or twbx) to the URL portion of the GET command. For example:
  • Incorrect: tabcmd get "workbooks/MonthlySales" -f "MonthlySales.twbx"
  • Correct: tabcmd get "workbooks/MonthlySales.twbx" -f "MonthlySales.twbx"

Cause

The URL must include a file extension. The extension determines what's returned.
