    View Data on Embedded gives 403 Error

    William Andrus

      I have a two secure sites, one to show reports (embedded) lets call it website A

      and another for Tableau Server, call it website B.


      I signed into the Tableau Report (using the Tableau's Authentication) that is embedded on website A but pointing to reports on website B. When I click on the "View Data..." button when viewing the embedded reports on website A it redirects me to website B with the following 403 Error message.

          Was a resolution found to this issue? We are experiencing the same scenario, and it worked prior to upgrading the server to version 8. Any ideas?

            No answer was found, but it seemed to only be a problem mostly in IE, in that it was being too secured.

            When I tried the same technique in Chrome, and sometimes in Firefox the data would show up.

            I also believe it might have been a computer specific problem. The laptop given at work was the one giving this error, but when I tried it at home -- it would work. Maybe there was a patch or security hole plugged in the laptop, but not home on my desktop.

              If there is an error specific to IE on a computer that is in a controlled IT environment, the culprit is quite often a group policy setting that is preventing an action from taking place. Unfortunately, I do not have any ideas of the top of my head as to what setting this would be but it could be a place to start. Describing the situation to your group policy administrators may help them to find the cause and adjust the setting if possible.


              Hope this small tidbit helps,
