Background Maps Do Not Render When Exporting to Image

When exporting an image from Tableau Server to PDF or PNG, the background map might not render. The background map renders correctly when viewing the view in a web browser.


  • Tableau Server
  • Network firewall or proxy server


The computer hosting Tableau Server cannot access the mapping servers.

Additional Information

As a troubleshooting step, disable client-side rendering by using the :?render=false URL parameter. If the map no longer renders in a browser, then this article applies. If the map still renders after disabling client-side rendering, it may be a different issue.
