Issue

After successfully refreshing a published data source, the Tableau Server browser view does not reflect the correct last update time-stamp or some meta-data changes, even after selecting the "Refresh" button. 

Environment

Tableau Server 9.3.0-9.3.3

Resolution

Upgrade to Tableau Server 9.3.4 or higher maintenance release (including 10.0 and higher or 10.1 and higher maintenance release). For more information, see Upgrading Tableau Server.

Cause

This behavior is related to a known issue (ID: 523291) that has been fixed in a later version of Tableau Server. 

Additional Information

The refresh is successful and any related views show the most recent data, the issue is with the "meta data" of the data sources as displayed by Tableau Server only, such as "last modified".
