  • Cloudera Hadoop Hive


Option 1

As a Tableau Server Administrator, upgrade to Tableau Server 10.3.3 or 10.2.5. For more information, see Upgrading Tableau Server in Tableau Help.

Option 2

  1. Access the affected workbook on Tableau Server and download it to your local desktop. 
  2. Open the local copy of the workbook in Tableau Desktop version 10.2.2 (having additional instances of Tableau Desktop on your computer will not impact licensing at all). 
    • When the warning populates that the workbook will be upgraded to version 10.2 when it is saved, click OK to continue. 
  3. Save the workbook (it can be the same name or a different one). 
  4. Sign in to Tableau Server from Tableau Desktop 10.2 and re-publish the workbook. 
  5. If the workbook name is the same, select Yes when prompted to overwrite.
