Yes, I believe so.
On a secured Tableau Server when I try to access the non-secured contents the server redirects me to the secured website. How do I configure it so that it doesn't do that? Are there any configuration changes required to the Tableau Server for the same?
I've never tried this myself, so I looked through some old support cases as your question was interesting. I see several notes indicating that when SSL is enabled on Tableau, all requests to 80 (or whatever) are redirected to 443 - so I actually think the answer is "no, you can't do this".
You may want to open up a case with Tableau Support to be 100% sure, but the stuff I saw looked pretty definitive. Note that Tableau Server Help says "all HTTP traffic", too:
You can configure Tableau Server to use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encrypted communications on all HTTP traffic.
Also curious - what sort of scenario are you dealing with where this would be helpful? I'd think SSL across the board would be just fine, so I'm missing something....
I am not an expert on this topic so perhaps I should have refrained from commenting. When I began using Server, my organization had switched the site to what the IT guy referred to as a new "SSL" version--so, I assumed before that, it was non SSL. Other than that, I was not directly involved although I can try and get more information on what that switch was all about. If I remember correctly, it was related to accessing our Server site from an external network. Before that, I believe you had to be on our internal network. So, again, I may be way have been way off base in responding to the question.
Please do post whatever you find out.
you can easily disable the SSL redirecting in httpd.conf (in tableau's data folder). So you can use it together for sure, but you have to change a few lines in that configuration file.
If you send me your tableau version I can post the necessary changes
FYI – while doing so is straight-forward, modifying http.conf manually will put you outside of support. So if you choose to do it, I want you to do so understanding the ramifications.
