When creating a new site or project in Tableau Server 9.0, the following error message might occur:

Some or all of the settings failed to save

Additionally, the following error message can be found in the log files:

ERROR: unrecognized configuration parameter "vizportal.project_templating_version"


  • Tableau Server 9.0
  • Previously installed Tableau Server 9.1 or 9.2


Use one of the following options:
  • Upgrade Tableau Server back to 9.1 or 9.2. For more information, see Upgrading Tableau Server.
  • Perform a clean reinstall of Tableau Server 9.0 and restore from a backup taken prior to the initial upgrade to Tableau Server 9.1 or 9.2.
Note: Creating a backup from the current, corrupted Tableau Server 9.0 installation will not resolve the issue.


Tableau Server was upgraded to 9.1 or 9.2, and then rolled back to 9.0 without clean installation.
