Question

How to remove the Share link from Tableau Server.

Environment

Tableau Server

Answer

Remove the Share link from an embedded view

1. Open the Command Prompt window as an administrator and run the following commands in order:

cd "C:\Program Files\Tableau\Tableau Server\[version]\bin"
tabadmin stop
tabadmin set vizqlserver.showshare false
tabadmin configure
tabadmin start

2. Navigate to the view and add ?:embed=y to the end of the URL.

Remove the Share link from a non-embedded view
  • Navigate to the view and add ?:toolbar=no to the end of the URL.
Note: To remove the Share link from a non-embedded view, you must remove the entire toolbar.

Additional Information

The showShareOptions parameter will override the default Tableau Server setting (as defined with the vizqlserver.showshare setting).
For example, if vizqlserver.showshare is set to false, but the showShareOptions parameter is set to true, the shareOptions will still appear.
