I appreciate you helping out, however, that file didn't work. I just got the normal Tableau map background. As well as an error that it was the wrong version of Tableau when I loaded it.
Did I do something wrong?
Sorry you are having trouble. I tried it again in both 8.2 and 8.1 and it worked for me. What version of Tableau are you using? What exactly did the error say?
I am running Tableau 8.2, so I'm not sure as to why we're having trouble replicating this.
Just to double check. You entered this:
into the add WMS dialog box in Tableau, then under Map/background maps you selected the geoserver WMS. Then you should be able to double click on the generated latitude and longitude to see your WMS. And under Map Options see the WMS layers. Formatting and getting what you want can still be issues with WMS, however.
