When changing a parameter filter in a workbook using an extract, Tableau sends a metadata query to the original data source.


  • Tableau Desktop 10.4 - 10.5
  • MS SQL Server using Windows authentication
  • Workbook using extract has connection information of original data source(MS SQL Server using Windows authentication)


Upgrade to Tableau Desktop 2018.1.3, 10.5.6 or a later version. For more information, see Upgrading Tableau Desktop in Tableau Help.
