Question

How to execute a specific subscription immediately using the "Run now" functionality?  Currently there is no "Run now" button available for individual subscriptions.
 

Environment

  • Tableau Server 2022.3 and newer
  • Tableau Cloud

Answer

Create a schedule for the specific subscription as a workaround, because it is possible to execute "Run Now" on a schedule.
  1. Create a schedule for the subscription.
  2. Register the subscription to the schedule created in Step 1.
  3. Execute "Run now" in  the schedule created in Step 1.
