When using the Content Migration Tool to move a workbook published from Tableau Desktop 2020.2, schema translations on live data source connections may not be set correctly in the destination workbook if transformations are used.

Following migration of the workbook, data sources that have been transformed will error when attempting to refresh the data. The error will show that the old schema name is still being used.
