tsm stop

You can use the tsm stop command to stop Tableau Server. If Tableau Server is already stopped, this command does nothing.


tsm stop [option] [global options]


--ignore-node-status <nodeID>


Ignore the status for the specified node or nodes when determining if the server has stopped. Useful if removing a bad node. Separate multiple nodes with commas.

For example, if nodes 2, 3 and 5 are not properly responding: tsm stop --ignore-node-status node2,node3,node5

Note: Option added in version 2020.1

--request-timeout <timeout in seconds>


Wait the specified amount of time for the command to finish. Default value is 1800 (30 minutes).

Global options

-h, --help


Show the command help.

-p, --password <password>

Required, along with -u or --username if no session is active.

Specify the password for the user specified in -u or --username.

If the password includes spaces or special characters, enclose it in quotes:

--password "my password"

-s, --server https://<hostname>:8850


Use the specified address for Tableau Services Manager. The URL must start with https, include port 8850, and use the server name not the IP address. For example https://<tsm_hostname>:8850. If no server is specified, https://<localhost | dnsname>:8850 is assumed.



Use this flag to trust the self-signed certificate on the TSM controller. For more information about certificate trust and CLI connections, see Connecting TSM clients.

-u, --username <user>

Required if no session is active, along with -p or --password.

Specify a user account. If you do not include this option, the command is run using credentials you signed in with.
