I was wondering if there could be any way to display any custom page with more meaningful message to be displayed in scenario's where Tableau Server is down.
For example, if admin has stopped the Tableau Server for any scheduled housekeeping and if same time any user tries to access server portal (user who is not sure about the on-going outage and then out of reaction,confirming things by sending a mail to Tableau Admin), isn't it better to display a page which shows a proper message about server downtime.
Has anyone implemented a similar solution in their project area or if there is any better solution for this scenario ?
Any pointers/help in this direction will be much appreciated.
I believe you'd need some sort of proxy site as once Tableau Server is down, so is the gateway which would prevent the server from displaying a maintenance page. I also found a thread which may help:
