Unable To Export CSV Data Using Tabcmd 2.0 Through Proxy

Published: 15 May 2023
Last Modified Date: 21 Aug 2023


When running tabcmd 2.0, proxy settings specified with the --proxy flag are not enabled.


  • Tableau Cloud
  • tabcmd 2.0
  • Windows


The functionality was added in tabcmd v2.0.12 and newer. To fix this issue, please use the correct version available on Github.

If tabcmd v2.0.12 and newer can not be used immediately, the following workaround is available to temporarily mitigate the issue:

Set http_proxy, and https_proxy environmental variables.
  1. Click the Windows Start button and type in: env
  2. From the search results, select 'Edit the system environment variables'.
  3. In the System Properties dialog, click 'Environment Variables'.
  4. In the Environment Variables dialog, under User variables, configure the following as required (If more than one value is specified, values should be separated by commas):
    • http_proxy
    • https_proxy
    • no_proxy (if necessary)
  5. Click OK to close the dialogs.
  6. Restart the command prompt and run the tabcmd export command. 


tabcmd 2.0 does not support the "--proxy" argument prior to tabcmd v2.0.12.
