    URL is causing issue with the #/Server is changing the URL

    Angie Tarbet

      I am trying to embed a Tableau Server URL that has a hash tag symbol into an SQL data base; since the # is not support by (no longer I believe?) Microsoft Tableau Server changes the URL for SOME of my users, giving them a bad URL (which takes them to error page).

       

      Good URL for most users - NOT ALL

      https://tableau.fdic.gov/#/site/TableauSvr_RMS/views/NESSWorkbooksListandLinks/NESSLISTLINKS

       

      For my users who get the error message, this is what the above URL gets changed to in Server

       

      Bad URL that gets automatically changed by Tableau Server

      https://tableau.fdic.gov/%20-%20/site/TableauSvr_RMS/projects/38/workbooks

       

      You can see that the # is being replaced by % (or spaces).

       

      How do we fix this and work with links to Tableau Server within Microsoft products please?
