Tabcmd Script Hangs Indefinitely or Does Not Complete as Expected

Issue

Sometimes, tabcmd commands do not process and hang indefinitely.

Environment

  • Tableau Server
  • Tabcmd
  • Script

Resolution

Make sure commands have enough to finish executing before logging out.

Cause

If a logout command is executed while tabcmd is trying to process another command, there is a risk that the first command will hang or be cancelled. 

Additional Information

Redundant "tabcmd login" commands will cause Tableau Server to end all previous sessions, as a "logout" will be automatically executed as part of the login command.
