Do not upgrade to 2020.1 – UPDATE!

///Do not upgrade to 2020.1 – UPDATE!

31-03-2020 – Update!

Tableau released Tableau Desktop 2020.1.2 and we can confirm that extensions are now working as expected again! Thank you for your patience.

Download Tableau Desktop 2020.1.2: here

Blog

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:

Solution #1

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.

Solution #2

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.

Greetings,

Merlijn Buit – Tableau Zen Master

    It is good that you publish this as a blog very quickly. It certainly diverted me from posting the problem to the Helpdesk!

    Hi,

    Do you have a timeframe when we would have this? I have upgraded to 2020.1 and cannot use the extension.

    Since 2020.1.1 is now out, is it now safe to install this again?

      Hello Alexander, we did not get the confirmation of 2020.1.1 yet, where did you find this information?

    • Merlijn Buit 30 March 2020 at 15:25 - Reply

      Hello Alexander,

      Extensions are already working on Tableau Server 2020.1.
      We are waiting for Tableau Desktop 2020.1.1 to release as there is an issue with extension on Desktop only.

      Thank you for your patience!

    hi there. The release notes show 2020.1.1 was made available on March 9. https://www.tableau.com/support/releases/server

    Have you been able to verify whether 2020.1.1 has the relevant fix

    thx. Jeff
