Web Page or Extension Object Blank When Exporting Dashboard to .pdf or Image

When you try to export dashboards that use web page or extension objects to image or .pdf files, the objects appear blank in the exports.


  • Tableau Server
  • Tableau Desktop


If you want the static data from the webpage to display in the export:
  1. Save the data as an image or convert it to text.
  2. Add the saved image or text to the dashboard in a text or image object. For more information, see Adding Dashboard Objects in Tableau Help.


Tableau does not store the data displayed through the web page or extension object.
