Error: "Unable to display web page object" in Tableau 10.2


Published: 03 Mar 2017
Last Modified Date: 01 Nov 2017

Issue

Unsecured HTTP iframe contents can't be loaded in view mode, the following error occurs:

 Unable to display web page object (URL must start with https://)


In Web Authoring, the below warning message may display:

Because the server is running HTTPS, the URL for this web page object must be specified using https:// instead of http://

 

Environment

Tableau Online 10.2
Tableau Server 10.2

Resolution

Ensure the web page object is a secure (HTTPS) URL rather than an unsecured (HTTP) connection.

Cause

Web Object functionality in Tableau Server and Tableau Online 10.2 (and newer versions) does not allow embedding unsecured web links in a secured (HTTPS) webpage or environment. This includes SSL-enabled Tableau Server environments.
