Troubleshooting Tableau trusted authentication

According to Tableau trusted authentication troubleshooting guide (, logs of trusted authentication (including why a request is rejected) are stored inside

C:\ProgramData\Tableau\Tableau Server\data\tabsvc\logs\wgserver

which is wrong. It costed me a few hours to figure out, the logs was actually here:

C:\ProgramData\Tableau\Tableau Server\data\tabsvc\logs\vizqlserver\vizal*.log

Thanks! This definitely helped me find where the logs were actually being written. Spent several hours stumbling around based on the Tableau docs. Found the logs at C:\ProgramData\Tableau\Tableau Server\data\tabsvc\logs\vizqlserver\vizql*.log for version 8.1

Hope that helps.
