    Action causes Tableau Server to open new tab in embedded view?

    Nathan Jones

      Hi all,

       

      This question's a little difficult because I can't provide a screengrab, but I'll try to provide context as best I can.

       

      I'm working in a drupal environment where we're embedding Tableau workbooks, and the process is pretty straightforward.  What's happening is we have a rogue workbook that, when you click on an action, instead of simply loading the new view, it opens up an entirely new window.

       

      At first, I thought it might be something that had to do with the link that we were using to embed, which looked like this:

       

      WorkbookName/WorksheetName?:isGuestRedirectFromVizportal=y&:embed=y

       

      But I tried to get the below to work, and it failed.

       

      WorkbookName/WorksheetName?:embed=y&:showShareOptions=true&:display_count=no&:showVizHome=no

       

      In addition, other workbooks with actions are working fine with similar links!  Perplexing.  So, long story short, a simple Tableau action that directs to a new workbook is causing my embedded workbooks to open in a new internet tab, which won't work for my product -- can you help me make sure there's now popup tab and that everything loads in situ?

       

      Thanks!
