- User group that contains "@" in the name
Option 1Upgrade Tableau Server to one of the following versions or higher:
Option 2If unable to upgrade, edit Active Directory groups to remove the @ symbol from the group name.
CauseTableau Server was failing to return the correct results to Tableau Desktop because the "@" character was being read as a separator between the group name and the domain.
Additional InformationThis issue occurs when the group name itself contains an "@" character. The issue is not related to the @ symbol which separates the group name from the domain. For example:
Group Name: ex@mple
Group Email: ex@firstname.lastname@example.org
Group Name: example
Group Email: email@example.com
