Unable to use Configuration key backgrounder.sort_jobs_by_run_time_history_observable_hours in Tableau Server


Published: 09 Oct 2019
Last Modified Date: 10 Oct 2019

Issue

Configuration 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.

 

Environment

Tableau Server 2019.3

Resolution

Backgrounder 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.

Cause

The 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.
