You can embed interactive Tableau views and dashboards into web pages, blogs, wiki pages, web applications, and intranet portals. Embedded views update as the underlying data changes, or as their workbooks are updated on Tableau Server or Tableau Online.

Embedded views follow the same licensing and permission restrictions used on Tableau Server and Tableau Online. That is, to see a Tableau view that's embedded in a web page, the person accessing the view must also have an account on Tableau Server or Tableau Online. For users to successfully authenticate when they click an embedded view, their browsers must be configured to allow third-party cookies.

Alternatively, if your organization uses a core-based license on Tableau Server, a Guest account is available. This allows people in your organization to view and interact with Tableau views embedded in web pages without having to sign in to the server. Contact your server or site administrator to find out if the Guest user is enabled for the site you publish to.

Note: Your Tableau administrator can limit the sites where embedding is allowed or disable embedding entirely. If your embedded view doesn't load, check with your administrator to make sure that the site where you have embedded it is on the embedding allow list. For more information, see Tableau Site Settings for Embedding.

You can do the following to embed views and adjust their default appearance:

  • Get the embed code provided with a view:

    1. Click the Share button at the top of a view. (The Share button doesn't appear in embedded views if you change the showShareOptions parameter to false in the code.)

      View toolbar

    2. Click Copy Embed Code, then paste the code into your webpage.

      Cope r

  • Customize the embed code: You can customize the embed code using parameters that control the toolbar, tabs, and more. For more information, see Embed Code Parameters for Views.

  • Use the Tableau JavaScript API: Web developers can use Tableau JavaScript objects in web applications. To get access to the API, documentation, code examples, and the Tableau developer community, see the Tableau Developer Portal(Link opens in a new window).
