Tableau has made a change to our latest maintenance release to support the way Chrome 80+ handles cookies, and released the attached scripts to change the configuration of existing versions to support Chrome 80+.
Because of this, it is recommended that Tableau Server be upgraded to the most recent maintenance release (Option 1 below). Review all options to determine which one best suits your environment.
First, complete these steps on all versions and operating systems:
- Ensure that SSL is enabled on Tableau Server, and on any web page that contains Tableau embedded views.
- Decide which option listed below to implement and test in a non-production environment first.
- Clear all cookies after making one of the below changes. Without taking this step, the changes will not take effect and embedded views will still fail to load on Chrome 80+.
Option 1: Upgrade to the latest maintenance releases of Tableau Server (Preferred path)
Upgrade to Tableau Server 2019.4.11, 2019.3.12, 2019.2.16, 2019.1.20, 2018.3.14, 2018.2.25, 2018.1.28, 10.5.29, 10.4.26 or a newer version.

For more information on current releases, see Upgrade Tableau Server and Server Upgrade.
Option 2: Configure Chrome 80 to revert to pre-Chrome 80 cookie handling behavior (if you prefer to configure Chrome rather than Tableau Server.)
See the following Chrome enterprise policy settings pages to revert back to pre-Chrome 80 behavior:
With this change you do not need to immediately update Tableau Server. However, once all your applications support SameSite and you have updated Tableau Server we recommend removing this policy.
