404 Error Logging Into Tableau Server with Okta SAML

Issue

When using Okta's pre-provided Tableau Server application with Tableau Server configured for Okta SAML, 
attempting to log into Tableau Server results in a 404 error. 
 

Environment

  • Tableau Server 2018.3
  • Okta SAML
  • Server-wide SAML

Resolution

Ensure that the Entity ID configured in Tableau Server and on the Okta application is the full login URL for Tableau Server, including "http://" or "https://".

Cause

Okta's pre-built application for Tableau Server uses the Entity ID to communicate with Tableau Server, so the Entity ID must be a complete URL including http or https.
