With the release of Tableau 2020.1 we have a lot of new great features in Tableau ready to use! But we also found an issue with our extensions not working anymore on Tableau Desktop 2020.1. There is an error with the URL handling which makes our extension URLs unusable. We have the following 2 solutions for you:
If you have upgraded Tableau Desktop and Tableau Server to 2020.1 already, do not worry. Extensions will work on Tableau Server 2020.1. Just use Tableau Desktop 2019.4 for dashboards with extensions until 2020.1.1 with the patch has been released.
Are you not on Tableau 2020.1 yet? That is ‘good’. You just have to wait until 2020.1.1 and upgrade to this version and it should be fixed!
The open Tableau community and our customers are very important to us. We love to make great extensions for Tableau and help Tableau users do things more efficiently. If you have feedback, ideas, questions or an issue? Please make sure you share it with us! Contact us through our support page.
