Issue

Using the command tsm configuration get -k [keyname] returns an error similar to: 
Unknown key: [keyname].
Known keys: 
[keyname]

For example:
C:\> tsm configuration get -k vizqlserver.extsvc.type
Unknown key: vizqlserver.extsvc.type.
Known keys:
vizqlserver.extsvc.type

Environment

Tableau Server with Tableau Services Manager (TSM)
  • Tableau Server for Linux (all versions)
  • Tableau Server for Windows (versions 2018.2 and newer)

Resolution

Use tsm security [setting] list to determine current configuration for any of the following settings:

tsm security external-ssl list
tsm security repository-ssl list
tsm security vizql-extsvc-ssl list

Cause

The tsm configuration get -k command are not intended to work with these security settings by design.
