Issue

When attempting to pass a view URL with URL-encoded parameters such as %26 and %2B, Tableau Server/Cloud initially renders the desired view, but then reloads and displays a blank view along with the original URL to the view changing.

Environment

  • Tableau Server 2021.2.0 
  • Tableau Server 2021.3.0
  • Tableau Cloud

Resolution

Upgrade Tableau Server to 2022.1.1, 2021.4.6, 2021.3.10 or later.

As a workaround, append "&:embed=y" to the end of the URL to load the view with URL-encoded parameters.
