    URL Actions with parameters populated by Tableau do not seem to work on Tableau Server. Is there a way to make them work?

    Bradley Collins

      In Tableau Desktop, I can create a URL Action with parameters populated by Tableau. For instance:

       

      http://domain/views/report/view?Type=<FILTERVALUES(Type)>

       

      will append the currently selected values from the filter on the Type dimension.

       

      However, these links do not work when I publish a workbook to Tableau Server. Trying to do so even breaks other functionality: setting the URL action to "Run action on: Menu" keeps the tooltip from showing up at all. The links work if I hardcode filters (e.g., "?Type=TypeA" in the above URL), but not if I let Tableau populate them.

       

      Is this a known bug? Does anyone know of a workaround?

       

      Thank you!
