Tableau Server Sign In Menu Does Not Retain Server Name
Published: 25 Oct 2017
Last Modified Date: 16 Feb 2018
IssueIf you sign into Tableau Server from Tableau Desktop using a server name rather than a full URL, the name will not appear in the Server Sign In drop down menu when trying to switch between servers.
- If you sign in with just
myserver, it will not appear in the sign in menu.
- If you sign in with
https://myserver.mynetwork, it will appear in the sign in menu.
EnvironmentTableau Desktop 10.3 - 10.4
Upgrade to Tableau Desktop 10.4.2 ; 10.3.6 ; 10.2.8 or 10.1.13 or 10.0.15. For more information, see Upgrading Tableau Desktop in Tableau Help.
As a workaround, use the full https:// domain name for the server connection.
CauseThis behavior is related to a known issue (ID: 704157) which has been fixed in a recent release of Tableau Desktop.
