Issue

When a customer enables an external File Store along with Data Catalog, users are not able to view the lineage for their data sources, flows, databases and tables.

Environment

Tableau Server 2020.1

Resolution

Option 1

Upgrade to Tableau Server 2020.1.2. For more information, see Upgrading Tableau Server Overview

Option 2

If you cannot upgrade your Tableau Server version, run the following TSM commands:

tsm configuration set -k

sos.type.flow_model.primary -v

fileSystem tsm configuration set -k

sos.type.flow_thumbnail.primary -v

fileSystem tsm configuration set -k

sos.type.flow_data.primary -v

fileSystem tsm pending-changes apply

Applying these changes will require a server restart.

Once these configurations are successfully applied, you will be able to view the lineage for your data sources, flows, databases and tables.
