Issue

When downloading a published datasource as a .tdsx file via tabcmd get, the resulting .tdsx file does not include data. The file size is much smaller than when downloaded directly from the Tableau Server interface in the browser. 

Environment

  • Tableau Server 
  • tabcmd

Resolution

Go to the datasources list for the site and ensure that the published datasource has a unique name (that there are no duplicated data sources).

Cause

Tabcmd is unable to differentiate between published data sources that have the same name.
