    Install existing SAN certificate?

    Edward Taylor

      Hi everyone - I have seen this asked before but no clear answers or steps in Tableau Admin guide either (only for when creating a SAN cert which is not what I need to know about).

       

      My situation is:

       

      Already have Tableau Server SSL working with SAML/SSO on my Stage tableau server like:

       

      stage-tableau.company.com

       

      Everything works just fine.

       

      Recently we have had customer complaints about embedding views being unviewable because their browsers don't allow 3rd party cookies. So long and short of it is I need to embed views using a different URL like:

       

      stage-tableau.othercompany.com

       

      I terminate SSL on my server, not on a load balancer.

       

      So i need to get a SAN cert and install it so that SSO/SAML still works with stage-tableau.company.com same as before, but so that we can also use embedded views with Trusted Tickets.

       

      In the "creating your own SAN cert" bit of the admin guide, I see you have to edit the apache.conf - is this still the case if you have your own SAN cert?

       

      Also if anyone has clear steps on how to install an existing SAN cert on Tableau Server I would really appreciate that.

       

      Thank you,

      Edward
