User Group Functions Like ISMEMBEROF Return Incorrect Result After Site Change


Published: 05 Jun 2018

Issue

Tableau Desktop does not automatically force a new query after switching sites. User group functions such as ISMEMBEROF() can use cached results after switching. This means that a "True" ISMEMBEROF may continue to return "True" after switching to a new site, where it is false or the group doesn't exist at all.

Environment

  • Tableau Desktop connected to a workbook on Tableau Server

Resolution

Right-click the data source and click "Refresh".

Cause

Tableau Desktop does not force a requery after sites are changed.
