  • Tableau Cloud
  • Tableau Bridge 


  1. In Tableau Cloud go to the the data source that the email mentions.
  2. Select the "Extract Refreshes" tab.
  3. On the right hand side you should see that the "Refresh this extract on"  has the option "Tableau Cloud" selected. You may also see that you have Extract Refresh schedules running in Tableau Cloud for this data source. Please take a note of the current extract refresh schedules that are in place (as they will be temporarily removed in the next step).
  4. Select the "Tableau Cloud" button on the right hand side and the "Choose Where to Run Extract Refreshes" popup should appear.
  5. Temporarily change the option from "Tableau Cloud" to "A Computer on my network with Tableau Bridge installed" and choose the machine listed in the email you received. and select "Save"
  6. You should now see an Extract Refresh schedule appear (or more than one), select the (...) beside the refresh schedule and select "Delete"
  7. Change the "Refresh this extract on" button back to Tableau Cloud by clicking on it and selecting "Tableau Cloud"
  8. Select "New Extract Refresh" and recreate the previous refresh schedules you had setup in Tableau Cloud


This occurs in the case where a Data Source was once refreshed by Tableau Bridge but it is now being refreshed by Tableau Cloud however the Tableau Bridge refresh schedules still exist. 
This was a known issue on Tableau Cloud which is fixed in the current version.
