When using multiple URL parameters then the 2nd, 3rd, Nth are separated by &, not ?.
Therefore, this one should work:
VIZ_PDF(Sales/Report?Region=Mitte / West&:size=2000,500)
thanks for the answer, but unfortunately this destroys my filter...
I assume that Vizalert thinks, that ="Mitte / West&:size..." is the filter option --> I get an empty view.
Any idea how to fix this?
With best regards,
I’ve got two ideas:
First of all, the VizAlerts documentation URL Parameters <https://github.com/tableau/VizAlerts/blob/master/docs/user_guide.md#url_parameters> specifies that the URL parameters used in content references need to be URL encoded. Behind the scenes VizAlerts actually attempts to URL-encodes those parameters but in this case my suspicion is that it’s not working due to some parsing error. So if you URL encode Mitte / West to Mitte%20%2F%20West that might work.
Secondly, the way I test URL parameters is to build out the content reference in a regular Tableau view in a browser. For example going to http://yourtableauserver/Sales/Report?Region=Mitte%20%2F%20West&:size=2000,500 <http://yourtableauserver/Sales/Report?Region=Mitte%20/%20West&:size=2000,500> and seeing if that works, and then if it doesn’t modifying the URL until you get something that works. Then you can paste the workbook/view?parameters section back into your alert source.
thanks for the answer!
The URL testing part is key
