TabPy v2.2.0 Released

TabPy version 2.2.0 is released:

To install or update to the latest version as usual run

pip install --upgrade tabpy

The release includes fixes for authentication:

  • Fixed bug for scripts with tabpy.query(...) calls for when authentication is configured for TabPy.
  • Fixed bug for TabPy reporting 500 error instead of 401 when it runs without the attached console.
  • Improved authentication security (this is breaking change) – now TabPy returns authentication error when credentials are provided, but it is not configured for it.

TabPy v1.1.0 released

TabPy version 1.1.0 is released: package – https://pypi.org/project/tabpy/, release on GitHub – https://github.com/tableau/TabPy/releases/tag/1.1.0.

You can update your TabPy with the following command (you’ll need to stop all running TabPy instances first):

pip install --upgrade tabpy

New release main improvement is for /info method (https://tableau.github.io/TabPy/docs/server-rest.html#get-info) – now it checks for credentials to be provided if TabPy is configured for authentication. The improvement won’t affect any older Tableau Desktop or Tableau Server versions which already had support for TabPy authentication.

For how to configure authentication for TabPy read How to configure TabPy with authentication and use it in Tableau.
