Issue

When a parameter is used in Before/After SQL on a Prep Builder output step and is then deleted, instead of the parameter being correctly deleted and replaced with it's current value, the parameter is not properly replaced and an error is shown.

Environment

Tableau Prep Builder 2022.1.1 

Resolution

This behavior is caused by a Known Issue, ID 1377044, that is currently under investigation by Tableau Development. The workaround in the meantime is to navigate to the output step using Before/After SQL and deleting the parameter manually.

Cause

Known Issue, ID 1377044, that is currently under investigation by Tableau Development.
