IssueConfiguration key backgrounder.sort_jobs_by_run_time_history_observable_hours is no longer present in Tableau Server 2019.3.
Using the following command:
tsm configuration get -k backgrounder.sort_jobs_by_run_time_history_observable_hours
returns the following error:
Unknown key: backgrounder.enable_task_run_time_and_job_rank.
EnvironmentTableau Server 2019.3
ResolutionBackgrounder job queue management is configured by two new keys: backgrounder.enable_sort_jobs_by_job_rank and backgrounder.enable_task_run_time_and_job_rank since 2019.1. These settings are enabled in 2019.3 and no longer user configurable.
CauseThe configuration key backgrounder.sort_jobs_by_run_time_history_observable_hours has been deprecated (ignored by Tableau Server) since version 2018.2. The configuration key was removed completely in 2019.3.
