Issue

When restarting a machine running Tableau Bridge (Sync Client), Bridge might not automatically start. 

Environment

  • Tableau Online
  • Tableau Bridge (formerly Sync Client)

Resolution

In order for Tableau Bridge (Sync Client) to start automatically when then machine restarts, it must be in Run Continuously mode. Otherwise, it will start once the Windows user logs into their account on which Bridge (Sync Client) has been installed.
