Issue

Unable to use tabcmd to publish a workbook that contains two data sources with two different sets of  embedded credentials.

Environment

  • Tableau Server
  • tabcmd
  • Embedded credentials

Resolution

Use the following workarounds:
  • Publish the data sources to Tableau Server with embedded credentials so that it is not necessary to pass the IDs and passwords via tabcmd when publishing the workbook.
  • Publish the workbook from Tableau Desktop and select Embedded password for Authentication option.

Cause

You can use tabcmd to publish a workbook with one data source and embedded credentials, but not two.
