You can use the built-in Web server in Tableau Server to include additional dynamic content on your dashboards. This feature can be useful if you want to provide Web content, Help files, or similar content on your dashboards.
Before beginning this example, you need to place two simple HTML files that Tableau can access from C:\Program Files\Tableau\Tableau Server\data\tabsvc\config\httpd. If you need to create these files, follow these steps.
In a text editor, create a new file and insert this text: "Hello World! This is page 1."
Save the file as hello1.htm in the C:\Program Files\Tableau\Tableau Server\data\tabsvc\config\httpd directory.
Create a second text file and insert this text: "Hello World! This is page 2."
Save the file as hello2.htm in the C:\Program Files\Tableau\Tableau Server\data\tabsvc\config\httpd directory.
Open each file in a browser to verify that the file is in the correct place. The URLs are http://localhost/errors/hello1.htm and http://localhost/errors/hello2.htm.
Create a simple view on a worksheet to drive your dynamic Web page.
Copy the following table into a blank Tableau workbook:
Hello World Pg1
Hello World Pg2
Note: When you use Copy and Paste functionality, Tableau treats the Clipboard like a data source.
On the Rows shelf, right-click the Page field and cancel the selection of Show Header.
