When attempting to publish output from Tableau Prep to Tableau Server, the following error may occur:

System error: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: There is no project found with name


  • Tableau Prep 2018.1
  • Tableau Server


A possible workaround for this behavior is to check whether automatic client authentication is disabled on Tableau Server, and enable the option if it is currently disabled: 
  1. In the site menu on Tableau Server, click Manage All Sites, and then click Settings > General.
  2. Under Connected Clients, enable the option Allow clients to automatically connect to Tableau Server.
  3. Click Save.


This behavior is related to Issue ID 771532, which is currently under investigation by our development team.
