.hyper Extract Published Using REST API Has .tde File Extension on Tableau Server

After publishing a .hyper extract file to Tableau Server using the REST API, the file has a .tde extension when viewed on Tableau Server.


Tableau Server 10.5.0 - 10.5.2


Option 1

As a Tableau Server Administrator, upgrade to Tableau Server 2018.1, 10.5.3 or a later version. For more information, see Upgrading Tableau Server in Tableau Help. 

Option 2

The .tde extension can be safely ignored. The extract itself remains in .hyper format and this issue is purely cosmetic.

To avoid the appearance of the '.tde' file extension, publish the .hyper extract using Tableau Desktop 10.5.0 or later. 


This behavior is related to a known issue (ID: 754677) which has been fixed in a recent release of Tableau Server. 

Additional Information

If the extract is downloaded locally as a .tdsx file and opened in a previous version of Tableau Desktop, before 10.5, the following message is displayed:
"This file was created by a newer version of Tableau. Please upgrade Tableau to the version (or greater) that the file was saved in."
