Issue

Unable to set up SharePoint 2010 for embedding Tableau Server views because "TableauEmbeddedView" option is missing in SharePoint 2010

Environment

  • Tableau Server 10.3.1
  • Windows 8
  • Sharepoint 2010

Resolution

The TableauEmbeddedView web part needs to be deployed to your SharePoint Server before seeing the option under the Custom menu in SharePoint.

SharePoint 2010:

For instructions on how to create a web part and deploy it to your SharePoint server, see:

C:\Program Files\Tableau\Tableau Server\<version>\extras\embedding\sharepoint.

The instructions will be called "sharepoint_instructions.txt". 

For example SharePoint code on how to create a web part, see:

C:\Program Files\Tableau\Tableau Server\10.3\extras\embedding\sharepoint\TableauEmbeddedView\TableauEmbeddedView\TableauEmbeddedView

Please note, the SharePoint code is provided as an example, and may require modification to work in your SharePoint deployment. The file you will need to modify is called "TableauEmbeddedView.cs". It looks like the following lines of code and is already included in the example code and needs to be un-commented before deployment on SharePoint 2010:
 
/***
if (_tabssl)
{
ServicePointManager.SecurityProtocol = SecurityProtocolType.Ssl3;
}
***/
