    Trusted Ticket

    Sandeep Reddy Alalla

      Hi All,


      I am not a tableau developer. i am a web developer trying to integrate tableau with an Angular and .net core application. My front end calls an API in the backend which inturn talks to the tableau server to get the truted ticket.

      We added the server IpAddress to the tableau server as the trusted IP. below is the code i am using. i get a response from the server but it is not the ticket but a bunch of HTML


      public string GetTrustedTicket()




      //                var url = $"https://devdoaenterprisebi.wi.gov/trusted/?:username={_tabConfig.Uid}&:target_site={_tabConfig.SiteId}";

                      var sbPostData  = new StringBuilder();

                      var        request = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(_tabConfig.Endpoint);



                      dynamic encoding = new UTF8Encoding();



                      sbPostData.AppendFormat("username={0}", _tabConfig.Uid);

                      sbPostData.AppendFormat("&target_site={0}", _tabConfig.SiteId);

                      sbPostData.AppendFormat("&client_ip={0}", _tabConfig.IpAddress);



                      byte[] data = encoding.GetBytes(sbPostData.ToString());



                      request.Method        = "POST";

                      request.ContentType   = "application/x-www-form-urlencoded;charset=UTF-8";

                      request.ContentLength = data.Length;



                      using (Stream stream = request.GetRequestStream())


                          stream.Write(data, 0, data.Length);




                      var response = (HttpWebResponse)request.GetResponse();



                     return new StreamReader(response.GetResponseStream()).ReadToEnd();


                  catch (Exception ex)


                      throw new Exception("HttpWebRequest could not be created with Tableau API.");




      Here is the HTML i got
