The Published Data Source is Linked to Another Data Source in Ask Data and Web Edit

The published data source is linked to another data source and the impacts are as follows:

1. Ask Data:

   The published data source shows another data source table published in Tableau Server.

2. Connect to Data:

    When editing the workbook, if you connect to the published data source, the link is to a different data source.


  • Tableau Server 2021.4 and newer


Workaround is to publish all data sources with the name in one case such as all lowercase or all uppercase. 

Note:  Tableau Server internally adds a unique identifier to the repository_url but the published data source could have the exact same repository_url (case-sensitive) as current existing published data source.
