After Upgrading to Tableau Server 2021.3.6 Authenticated Active Directory Users See 404 Error If the Contents Only Allow Guest Access

After upgrading to Tableau Server 2021.3.6, when authenticated Active Directory users navigate to views only allowing guest access, a HTTP 404 error is returned.

However in Tableau Server 2020.3.3, the authenticated Active Directory users can access the view successfully.

This issue happens when:

  • The permission is denied for authenticated user and allowed for guest user.
  • Active Directory is used as user store.


    • Tableau Server 2021.3.6


    Option 1

    Upgrade Tableau Server to 2021.3.8 or later version.

    Option 2

    If you cannot upgrade, try this workaround:
    1. Sign-out of Tableau Server or close the browser.
    2. Access the URL of the view.


    Possibly changes introduced in 2020.3.4-2021.3.6 caused the issue.
