Issue

Filters randomly reset when swapping browser tabs from different Tableau Server sites.

Environment

  • Tableau Server

Resolution

This is expected behavior. It is not possible to log in to a workbook from multiple sites at the same time, if hosted on the same Tableau Server.

Cause

Tableau Server uses site-specific cookies, when the tab switches the new cookies replace the other site's cookies and the view is refreshed clearing the filters.
