URL Action Overrides (Link Target)

When a URL action gets triggered in Curator, there are different settings that allow Curator to handle these actions in a more sophisticated manner directing your users to the location they want to end up without much intervention in the middle. You can find a description of the available options at the bottom of this page.

To set the link target:

  1. Login to the backend of your Curator instance (e.g. https://www.site.com/backend ).
  2. Navigate to the Tableau > Dashboards section from the left-hand menu.
  3. Click the dashboard you'd like to edit from the list page.
  4. Under the "Advanced" tab, look for the Embedded Options section.
  5. Chang the Link Target field to the desired option (see below for descriptions)
  6. Click the "Save" button.

Available Options

Default By default, Curator handles the URL as defined in the Tableau dashboard.

Self The URL Action defined in the Tableau dashboard will load within the embedded frame on the page keeping the user in the same location.

Parent The URL Action defined in the Tableau dashboard will change the location of the current browser tab the user is on navigating them away from the current page.

Blank The URL Action defined in the Tableau dashboard will open in a new browser tab.

Curator Detect Curator will look at the value of the URL you have defined in your dashboard's URL Action and if it is a dashboard that is hosted on the Tableau Server your Curator instance is connected to, it will look to see if that dashboard is available in the current user's navigation within Curator. If accessible, it will direct them to the Curator page where that dashboard is hosted in the same browser tab. If not, it will direct them to the URL opening up a new browser tab.

Curator Detect New Tab The same behavior as Curator Detect, only in both scenarios it opens up a new tab.
