- Tableau Desktop and Prep Builder 2020.3 or later.
- Connectors that utilize OAuth
ResolutionAdd a NO_PROXY variable to the Windows Environment Variables and set the value as 'localhost'.
- Use the Windows Search to find "Edit the System Environment Variables" > Click "Environment Variables..."
- Select "New..." under User Variables.
- Variable Name: NO_PROXY

CauseBeginning in Tableau version 2020.3, when connecting to data via OAuth, a java process is started by Tableau. The java process acts as an intermediary for OAuth and it also communicates to Tableau using localhost. If a proxy is configured on the machine where Tableau is running, the java process trying to communicate with Tableau via localhost will fail to negotiate the proxy. To avoid that, users can set OS configuration that when processes are communicating locally (using localhost), to avoid using the proxy.
Additional InformationAffected users will have HTTP and HTTPS proxy values set In the Windows Environment Variables.
