When navigating to an embedded Tableau view, Tableau prompts to authenticate, rather than automatically authenticating over the IdP. 


  • Tableau Server
  • Tableau Online 
  • Site-SAML


Ensure the below two options are properly configured. 
  1. Set the Default authentication type for embedded views to SAML
  2. Under Embedding options, select Authenticate using an inline frame (less secure; not supported by all IdPs). 
See Enable SAML Authentication on a Site in Tableau Help for more information. 

Additional Information

Any other combination of embed options will result in a login prompt.
