When you try to embed Tableau views in external websites, the views might not display.

In addition, when you try to embed HTTP websites in Tableau Server dashboards with SSL enabled on Tableau Server, the websites might not display.


  • Tableau Server
  • SSL
  • Firefox 
  • Chrome
  • Internet Explorer
  • Website with HTTP and HTTPS content


Option 1

Use a dashboard URL action to open the webpage in a new browser window. For more information, see URL Actions in Tableau Help.

Option 2

Make all content on the website either HTTP or HTTPS.


Firefox, Chrome, and Internet Explorer block websites that contain mixed (both HTTP and HTTPS) content.
