Error: "Resource Not Found" When Viewing Workbook with Embedded Parameters


Published: 05 Dec 2016
Last Modified Date: 15 Jun 2017

Issue

When navigating to an embedded view, the following errors might occur: 
"Resource Not Found"
And
​"Please check the URL and try again"
 
Additionally, removing the "embed=y" allows the view to display as expected. 

Environment

Tableau Server

Resolution

Re-generate the URL from the Share Link on the Tableau Server.

Cause

The URL contains an extra forward slash after the [SheetName] name but before the URL parameters: 
  • Incorrect: [MyTableauServer]/views/[Workbook]/[SheetName]/?:embed=y
  • Correct:  [MyTableauServer]/views/[Workbook]/[SheetName]?:embed=y

Additional Information

The Tableau Server will resolve most URLs that contain a slash in the incorrect spot except in the case of "embed=y"
