Search your Tableau site

Tableau Server and Tableau Online offer two search options: quick search and search with filters.

The quick search, accessed at the top of the page, searches the entire site for matching items of any kind. The search with filters, accessed through the filter area, finds matches on the page you are viewing.

The quick search and the filtered search support attributes and operators. These will help you to define the search area. For example, you can include an attribute to limit a search to view titles only, or use operators such as and.

Note: With Tableau Catalog enabled on your site, you can use Quick Find to find non-embedded databases and tables (also called external assets). As of 2019.3, Tableau Catalog will be available in the Data Management Add-on for Tableau Server and Tableau Online. For more information, see “About Tableau Catalog” in Tableau Server or Tableau Online Help.

Quick search

Use the quick find box at the top of the page to find items anywhere on your Tableau site. The quick search searches for matching texts in resource names, metadata, owners, tags, labels, comments and other information.

As you type, the items that most closely match your search text are displayed. These brief results show limited details, such as the number of page views for each item.

Press Enter or select Show All Results to view the full page of search results. To view more details, select View As> List. The details of each result, such as the date it was last modified and the number of visits, will help you find the latest and most popular articles.

Click the tabs at the top of the page to see the results for each type. Use the Sort By options to sort items by general properties, such as name, or type-specific properties, such as data source certification status. Refine your search using the filters on the right side of the page.

Note: The quick search limits the search to published data sources. If you want to search embedded data sources (workbooks that only use a data connection), use a filtered search.

Tableau Catalog users may see search results for non-embedded databases and tables before Catalog is complete. In this case, if you click on this entry in the results of the quick search, the warning message "Show partial results ..." is displayed. When you check the search results page, the entry will be grayed out until inclusion in Catalog is complete.

Filtered search

Using filtered search, you can use a combination of search text and filters to find items. In addition to general filters, some items have filters that are unique to their type. For example, you can filter for workbooks with warnings or for encrypted data sources.

The filter options for views are shown below.

A filtered search applies to the items on the displayed page. It does not look elsewhere on the site.

Note: When viewing a page that shows more than one type of item, only the general filtering options are shown. To display filters that e.g. For example, if you are specific to workbooks, you must first filter to see only workbooks on this page.

To do a filtered search:

  1. Navigate to the page you want to search, then click the Filter button (funnel) to open the panel.

  2. To search, type your text in the top box of the filter area, then press Enter.

  3. To filter, select the filter and then enter a value for the filter or choose from the options available.

To remove a filter, click Delete next to the filter name.

To remove all filters, click Reset All Filters at the top of the Filters section.

Search attributes

Tip: The search is not case-sensitive.

In addition to the general search, you can restrict the search in Tableau Server and Tableau Online to a specific attribute. This includes, for example, the name, the workbook, the data source, etc.

Use the following syntax in the search box to include a search attribute:

(without spaces before and after the colon).

For example, if you only want to return items whose names contain the words sales include:

You can enter several attributes to further specify the search query. For example, to find all of the dashboards owned by Smith, you would type:

A full list of attributes is given below.

This attribute ...followed by ...Gives

Note: Prior to version 8.2, Tableau Server listed owners or owners as publishers. The search attribute publisher is still supported and returns the same results as the attribute owner.

Note: The quick search limits the search for to published data sources. If you want to search embedded data sources (workbooks that only use a data connection), use a filtered search.

Search operators

You can use,, and with search terms, and you can combine them with attributes to create search terms. For example, if you want to search for all items that don't match a particular term, or that match one term or another, but not necessarily both.
