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.


Tableau Server 2020.1


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.
