Cannot Set Subscription Schedule to Run After Extract Refreshes Complete

Last Modified Date: 01 Sep 2020

Issue

The ability to schedule subscription tasks to run after extract refreshes complete is unavailable.

Environment

  • Tableau Server
  • Tableau Online

Resolution

For Tableau Server, upgrade to 2020.3 which introduces the feature for Subscription run on extract refresh

For Tableau Online with Tableau Bridge connections this feature is not available.  As a workaround, publish the data source directly to Tableau Online instead of using Bridge.

Cause

The function was introduced in version 2020.3 of Tableau Server and Tableau Online. For Tableau Online the ability to run the subscription after the refresh extract is not built in for Bridge connected data sources.
