Signing in or Publishing to Tableau Server with SAML Enabled Redirects to Views Page


Published: 07 Nov 2014

Issue

After successfully logging in to SAML-enabled Tableau Server from Tableau Desktop, the Tableau Server Views page is displayed instead of a successful sign-in message.

 

Environment

  • Tableau Server
  • SAML
  • Proxy
  • Tableau Desktop

Resolution

  • Ensure that Tableau Server is correctly configured for a proxy and knows the public name that SAML is configured for by following the instructions in the following Online-Help article: Configuring Tableau Server to Work With a Proxy Server.
  • Ensure that your Identity Provider preserves the RelayState when redirecting back to Tableau Server.

Cause

The SAML destination does not match any known Tableau Server names. After users authenticate, this causes it to redirect to the public name configured in the proxy server.
