IssueWhen running a .bat file to automate export of Tableau Server views, filter parameters are ignored when they contain spaces, or other characters requiring encoding.
For example, running a .bat script with the following export command results in a PDF generated for the original (unfiltered) view:
tabcmd export "Workbook/Sheet1?Order%20Priority=High&Customer%20Segment=Home%20Office" -s http://server-u user -p password --fullpdf -f "C:\export.pdf"The tabcmd.log file shows that the resulting request is:
tabcmd export "Workbook/Sheet1?Order0Priority=High&Customer0Segment=Home0Office" -s http://server-u user -p password --fullpdf -f "C:\export.pdf"
Notice that the '%2' is stripped from the URL.
