Your server is running and Prep Conductor is licensed, but when you try to publish a flow, you get an "Unable to publish Flow" error. The following error may also appear:

"There was a problem connecting to Tableau Server. Please retry."


  • Tableau Server 2019.1
  • Tableau Prep Conductor


This error may indicate that the Tableau Perp Conductor process is not running. After licensing Tableau Prep Conductor, the Server must be restarted to start this process. Check the Status of the Tableau Prep Conductor process in the status tab to confirm the process is started and running.
