Login failed due to username is case sensitive in Tableau Server 2022.1 with Local Identity Store

Issue

After upgrading a Tableau Server using Local Identity Store to version 2022.1.0, when logging in, users may receive an error that they have not specified a valid username, even though they are entering exactly the same username that worked prior to upgrading Tableau Server.

The correct behavior is that username should NOT be case-sensitive. If there was an Local Identity Store account with the ID of "UserName" then any of the following variations: "Username" "USERNAME" and "username" should be accepted as valid. But due to this defect it may be the case that only "UserName" actually works. 

Environment

  • Tableau Server 2022.1.0
  • Local Identity Store

Resolution

Tableau developers are investigating this issue with ID 1398906 and will fix in a future maintenance release.

In the meantime, as a workaround:
  • Log in using the correct case for the username, if known 
  • If the correct case for username is not known, ask your Tableau Server administrator to look up your username, including case sensitivity.  

Cause

Being investigated via TFS 1398906
