Unable to Start Analysing via Ask Data after Publishing Extract using Alteryx's "Publish to Tableau Server Tool"

Issue

When the "Publish to Tableau Server Tool" Alteryx tool is used to publish extracts, dimensions and measures are not available after analysis from Ask Data.

Environment

  • Tableau Server 2019.1.1 - Ask Data
  • "Publish to Tableau Server Tool" (Alteryx)

Resolution

The extract can still be created in Alteryx, but must be published by other means than the tool.
One workaround is to create the extract from Alteryx to a network drive and then use Tableau Server to set up a refresh schedule for the extract in the network folder.

Cause

The Alteryx "Publish to Tableau Server Tool" (v1.09 and v2) publishes extracts in a way that Ask Data cannot digest.
