    Not possible to embed multiple views from different sites of a single Tableau Server

    Simon Forwood

      We use the Tableau javascript api to embed Tableau Server views into our application.

      We have noticed a limitation when embedding multiple views on a single page:

      It is possible to embed multiple views from different Tableau Server instances (and Tableau Online) on a single page.

      It is also possible to embed multiple views from a common Tableau Server instance, when the views are from a common Site (Tableau Server site).

      However it does not appear to be possible to embed multiple views from different Sites of a Tableau Server instance, onto a single page. Attempting to do this results in only one of the views ever showing. There seems to be a limitation in a loaded instance of the javascript api where the user is authenticated for only a single specific site at one time; attempting to do a new tableau.viz() on a view from a different site is unsuccessful.

       

      Does anyone know of a way to get around this?
