    Custom Tableau URL Subdomain to IP Address

    CJ Dickinson

      Hi All,

       

       

      I have found a few articles on this, but nothing specific enough.

       

      We would like to have our branch managers be able to type tableau.123company.com and be able to log in versus 50.123.456.78:8000. Here is what I have done:


      We have an IP address for our Tableau web viewer (ex 50.123.456.78) and the sub-domain tableau.123Company.com a-record pointing to that IP address.

       

      The problem is that our DNS service will not allow us to include the port :8000 in the a-record. Which upon further research seems to be normal.

       

      So my questions is how, or can I, do I get an IP address for the tableau server to that the sub-domain can point to?

       

      Thank you!
