    X-Frame-Options and Tableau Desktop - is it supported?

    Scott Kurinskas

      Hi -


      We've built a web data connector that works in simulator doesn't work in Tableau Desktop.  Our suspicion is that we're hitting cross-origin issues, preventing the server from evaluating the request.  We respect the X-Frame-Options http header to workaround this issue.


      Two questions:

      1.  Does the embedded browser in Tableau Desktop respect the X-Frame-Options header?

      2.  For https requests, does the browser set the referrer header?  If so, what value is it set to?


      We whitelisted the url in the x-frame-options and content-security-policy headers for the simulator (localhost:8888) and it works.  We're not sure what's the equivalent for Tableau Desktop
