When applying a tsm configuration set command, a configuration error is returned.

Configuration error: At least one configuration value you specified does not match a known configuration key.


  • Tableau Server 2018.2 and above


Step 1
Make sure the key is spelled correctly. This error can occur if the key is incorrect.

Step 2
If the key is correct, use the parameter to force unrecognized keys into configuration and run the command again:

when you are doing the --force-keys the first time, be VERY careful of typos.
This will only need to be done the first time.


The error is typically due to Tableau Server not having the value by default. This is because the keys have not been set.
