Tableau Server 9.2.4 and laterRename the data source and republish the workbook.

- In the Rename Connection dialog box, type a new name, and click OK.
- Select Server > Publish Workbook to republish the workbook to Tableau Server.
CauseThis issue occurs when:
- A new field is added to the underlying data source, and then used in a view inside a dashboard.
- A field that is used in a view inside the dashboard is deleted or renamed in the underlying data source.
The Refresh command in Tableau Desktop will refresh the connection. This is because Tableau Desktop can only have one user; refreshing the connection only affects that single user. If the Tableau Server Refresh command worked in the same way, the connection would cause a query cache miss for Tableau Server users in the same process. For this reason, the Refresh command on Tableau Server runs only new queries, rather than refreshing the connection.
