Issue

When you rename a calculated field in Tableau Desktop, and then publish to Tableau Server, the change is not relfected and old name is still used on Tableau Server.. 

Environment

  • Tableau Desktop
  • Amazon Athena
  • Tableau Server

Resolution

Create a local copy of the datasource, and replace the local copy datasource with the original datasource, and then publish to the Tableau Server.

Cause

The data source is the published data source on the same Tableau Server. So when the renamed calculation field published to the same Tableau Server, the calculation field name will use the original name on Tableau Server.
