    Could not locate unexpired trusted ticket

    Mike Labman

      I have a very basic ASP.NET/C# web portal that handles logging in a user,  then reaches out to my Tableau server for a ticket, and loads a Viz in an iframe.


      It works perfectly well, every time, from within my own network, as well as from a few random other machines in the cloud that I have access to, but my client always gets the infamous "Could not locate unexpired trusted ticket" error.


      When I check the Tableau Server httpd logs, we're getting two sequential requests for the same ticket.  AS you can see, first one gets through, second one returns with a 403 error.  And of course the user ends up getting back the 2nd one, not first.

      As per Tableau's help page here (Error "Could not locate unexpired trusted ticket" | Tableau Software ) I updated my code to include the client's IP address and I turned on Client IP matching setting.   Still, the same thing occurs.


      I've included my very basic c# code for what it's worth.  The .net page just simply has a button called BtnGetTicket and an iframe called TableauTarget1.


      Server version is 10.2


      --- UPDATE ---

      I have been able to remote desktop to my client's network.   I repeated the procedure of trying to open the ticketed URL.  Through Fiddler logging,  there is only a single request made whereas the httpd log, again shows a 302 message first,  followed by the 403.


      --- UPDATE ---

      Internet Explorer works perfectly, sending one request and opening tableau perfectly.   Firefox and Chrome both have the issue.

      Yet,  the httpd log reads:

      --- UPDATE ---

      If, instead of loading the Tableau view into an Iframe, if I just perform a redirect to the exact URL, it works in both Firefox and Chrome.  Something about the iframe is causing this duplicated request.  I even tried performing the same identical redirect in the iframe and it still results in the unexpired trusted ticket error.
