tsm pending-changes

Use the tsm pending-changes commands to apply, discard, or view pending configuration and topology changes to Tableau Server.

Passwords and secrets that you enter during TSM configuration are encrypted after you save them. Secrets remain encrypted until, during, and after you apply pending changes. For more information about secret storage, see Manage Server Secrets.

tsm pending-changes apply

Use the tsm pending-changes apply command to apply pending configuration and topology changes to Tableau Server.

If the pending changes require a server restart, the pending-changes apply command will display a prompt to let you know a restart will occur. This prompt displays even if the server is stopped, but in that case there is no restart. You can suppress the prompt using the --ignore-prompt option, but this does not change the restart behavior. If the changes do not require a restart, the changes are applied without a prompt.

Synopsis

Options

-iw, --ignore-warnings

Optional.

Ignore warning level constraints.

--ignore-prompt

Optional.

Suppress the prompt for restart. This only suppresses the prompt. The restart behavior is unchanged.

--request-timeout <timeout in seconds>

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

tsm pending-changes discard

Use the tsm pending-changes discard command to discard pending configuration and topology changes to Tableau Server.

--config-only

--topology-only

tsm pending-changes list

Lists pending configuration and topology changes to Tableau Server. Any changes that do not require a server restart will be listed as not requiring a restart. If none of the pending changes require a restart, a message displays saying the changes do not require a server restart. If any change in the list requires a restart, the entire list of pending changes will result in a restart. For more information on dynamic configuration or topology changes, see Dynamic Configuration and Tableau Server Dynamic Topology Changes.
