The URL Used to Access a Published Workbook Changes after the Workbook Name is Updated and Published to Tableau Server

The URL which is used to access a published workbook/worksheet is changed after the workbook/worksheet name is modified and then re-published to Tableau Server from Tableau Desktop.  


Tableau Desktop
Tableau Server


If the desire is to alter the workbook name but keep the URL consistent, use the Web Edit function on Tableau Server.

Log into Tableau Server, locate the workbook, use Web Edit and rename the workbook or worksheet name then save it.


Currently, the behavior is by design.
