A flow based on an Oracle data source can be run via the Tableau Prep UI, but fails when run via the command line (tableau-prep-cli.bat) with the following error: 
Could not find match for <database name>


  • Tableau Prep 2018.2.3 - 2018.3.1
  • Oracle


Option 1:

Upgrade to Tableau Prep 2018.3.2 or a newer version. For more information, see Install Tableau Prep.

Option 2:

As a workaround, specify the port number in the Tableau Prep GUI, or run the flow directly in Tableau Prep. 


This behavior is related to a known issue with ID 825086 which has been corrected in Tableau Prep 2018.3.2.
