"Run on Select" does not pass filter values in URL dashboard action on Server

When a URL Action is set to run on Select and set to pass FILTERVALUES(<field>), if <field> is in the view's level of detail then after publishing and the view is rendered client-side, the values will not be passed when selecting a mark in the view.


Tableau Server 10.1.0


Use one of the following workarounds: 
  • Use Run On Menu instead of Select 
  • Use <field> instead of FILTERVALUES(<field>) - this will pass only one value regardless of selecting "Allow Multiple Values"
  • Disable client-side rendering either on a server level or by appending :render=false to the view's URL
  • If the <field> referred to in FILTERVALUES(<field>) is in the view, remove from the view (such as Rows, Details, etc)  this may change the structure of the view
