    Tableau Reverse Proxy for Nginx

    Shilpa S

      I have embedded tableau report inside my application using javascript api. In the javascript api, I am getting the tableau report url from the tableau server using trusted authentication and reverse proxy. The application works fine, if the application is deployed without SSL. On my production it is under SSL(https). I have enabled the reverse proxy for the tableau server from the Nginx which is working. But when the call is made using the javascript API it is getting resolved to http call...and it is getting blocked due to SSL,


      I tried to add the below configuration in the Nginx, but it gave error for proxy redirect on.


      server {

               listen       443;

               server_name  <server_name>;

               ssl                  on;

               location / {

                     proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Host $host;

                     proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Server $host;

                     proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto "https";

                     proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;

                     proxy_pass http://<server_name>/;

                     proxy_redirect on;








      Can someone help me to configure SSL for tableau server.
