Issue

When using Tableau Server without SSL in conjunction with a load balancer configured for SSL and SAML authentication, Tableau Server redirects to http rather than https, after successful SAML authentication, leading to a browser redirect error.

Environment

  • Tableau Server 9.0.3
  • SSL enabled load balancer
  • SAML authentication

Resolution

Option 1

Enable SSL on Tableau Server, as well as the load balancer.

Option 2

Disable SSL on the load balancer.
