Workbook using an embedded flat file data source is not reflecting new data after the workbook has been edited and saved on Tableau Server, when the "Include external files" option has been unchecked.


  • Tableau Server 2021.1.0 and later versions
  • Tableau Server 2021.2.0 and later versions
  • Tableau Server 2021.3.0 and later versions
  • Excel, csv


This behavior is currently under investigation under ID 1304232.

Follow this workaround:

Publish the data source separately to Tableau Server instead of embedded it in the workbook.


Defect - post upgrade regression.

This is occurring because the keychain is incorrect after the workbook is edited on the server and saved.

Additional Information

The cause is under investigation by dev.
