How to export a .pdf of a story with tabcmd.


  • Tableau Server 2018.3
  • Windows Server 2012


Creating a .pdf of a story via tabcmd is the same process as creating a .pdf of a workbook or a view, however the path to the story will need to be specified. Below is shown an example command  to successfully create and export a story in .pdf format:

Tabcmd export -s <Server hostname or IP> <Workbook>/<Story_name> --fullpdf

Note: This will save the .pdf file to the location, which tabcmd is run from.
