    Transparent Backgrounds not working with embedded Tableau visualizations (using Javascript API)

    Raleigh Chen

      I'm trying to embed dashboards from co-workers' Tableau workbooks into my (non-Tableau) site to create a combined dashboard.  It's kind of a pain to have them make changes to match my aesthetic, so I was excited to hear about transparent backgrounds.  However, it doesn't seem to be working when I'm using the Javascript API to embed them.  Even after editing the sheet to be "None" in the shading section of the format for a single sheet, when I embed it in a basic HTML page using the API, there are still a lot of things that seem to be hardcoded to RGB(255, 255, 255) (i.e. white).

       

      Has anyone been able to successfully embed a visualization into something else and have the transparency work to show the background of the (non-Tableau) page behind it?
