Adding Google Analytics to Tableau Server

Embed filters in URL

http://vizwiz.blogspot.com/2012/11/tableau-tip-passing-filters-in-url-to.html

Can embed Tableau parameters into the URL parameters as well.

Aliases and URL parameters

If a dimension or Tableau parameter is using aliases and you embed the dimension or Tableau parameter into a URL, the URL parameter uses the alias, not the underlying value. So, for example, if the integer value 1 has the alias East, East will be passed in the URL. The options are to deal with it on the receiving end or to create a calculated field in the sending workbook that doesn’t have an alias.

Boolean parameters that aren’t aliased use true/false, True or False cause a Tableau Server internal error.

SlideShare from Russell Christopher on URL and Javascript

v8 force rendering in browser or server:

To control whether a viz is rendered by the server or browser, you can add the flag :render=true for browser rendering and :render=false for server rendering to the url. For example, the url to an embedded viz with server rendering might be http://host.com/workbook_name/view_name?:embed=yes&:render=false
