We are currently using Tableau server 2018.1.2 (20181.18.0615.1128) 64-bit Windows.
We have a Tabbed workbook having 5 tabs with the first tab been Overview.
So if a user lands on the dashboard he will see the overview tab and then he can decide to go to either tab 3 or tab 4.
So suppose the user is on tab 4 and he waits on the particular tab for 5 minutes assuming he got busy, So when he returns back and clicks on tab 5 what tableau does is it reopen the first Overview Tab instead of going to tab 5 .
The vizqlserver.session.expiry.timeout is set to 3 mins.
Is there any other parameters that need to be tweaked or disabled so that this behavior is not encountered on production or a workaround?
Why is your vizqlserver.session.expiry.timeout set so low at 3 minutes? I believe the default is 30 minutes. This could be the root cause as it establishes a new session
