Tableau Bridge WDC Extract Refresh Jobs Failing After Upgrading to Version 2023.1

Published: 02 Jun 2023
Last Modified Date: 05 Jun 2023


After upgrading Tableau Bridge to 20231.23.0511.1508 (released in May 2023), WDC extract refresh jobs executed on Bridge may fail with an error about URLs not being recognized or present in the secondary allow list found in the Tableau Bridge logs.


  • Tableau Bridge 2023.1
  • Web Data Connector (WDC)


The following workaround options are available:

1. Revert back to the previous working version of Tableau Bridge.
2. Use Tableau Desktop to refresh the extract and republish it to Tableau Cloud.


WDC URLs are not present in the secondary allow list. This issue is currently under investigation under Known Issue W-13523602 published on the Salesforce Known Issue website.
