Published: 02 Feb 2018 Last Modified Date: 05 Feb 2018
When publishing a datasource to Tableau Server, getting Error in parameters for command 'set-publish-object-connection-auth-setting' bad value: connection-name
Tableau Server 10.5.0
Rename the datasource in question, removing all special characters from the name:
Open a worksheet within the affected workbook
In the Data pane, on the left, right-click on the datasource in question and select Rename
Rename the datasource, ensuring only basic alphanumeric chartacters are used
Tableau Desktop was unable to parse a special character, such as ç or ó
A similar error can be triggered with other actions in Tableau Desktop, such as editing a datasource. While the command section of the error may be different, if bad value: connection-name is in the error, then the resolution may still be to rename the datasource, removing special characters.
