We have experienced the same problem with Tableau Server 7.0. Refreshing the page almost always reloads immediately. I don't know what how to prevent this, but would love to learn.
We have a similar issue.
We have a Tableau view embedded in a PHP script with trusted authentication. This view is accessed by our clients via a Cisco VPN connection. The view has the spinning icon indefinitely when trying to use it via IE ONLY. Firefox works fine. interestingly enough if the view is accessed internally via IE it works fine, it's just when accessed via the Cisco VPN it hangs.
Tableau has tried debugging this with us and is still in the process of doing so, however thought i'd see if you've received a resolution to your issue that may assist us?
Anyone have an update on this? We are experiencing this same issue with Tableau Server 7.0 using IE 8.
We do indeed have this problem. IE8/9 on Windows 7.
The first attempt at loading a load of the page results in a prologued 'spinning wait.' When users go the previous page and back to the target page, the page immediately loads.
Thank you for posting this!!!!
Just got the issue here; again, only IE is impacted, doesn't happen on Chrome or Firefox.
In our case, the user filter was changed and the browser hung up fetching images from a VizQL service for points on a Tableau map.
I have sent an email to Tableau support, and included a link to this thread.
I had one of our account folks open up a support case to get this looked at; somewhat ridiculous that all communication thus far has been ignored for such an issue.
These sorts of issues can have any number of causes. Anything from IE security, to IE caching, or even interference of other network systems and may not be the result of Tableau Server itself misbehaving. If you are experiencing issues like this the best step forward is to submit a support request so that our team of experts can help you.
