This instruction will be useful if you want to reach instances that are behind firewall outside of network by using the Putty SSH Client and SSH Port Tunneling.
Here is an instruction on how you will be able to do it: https://howto.ccs.neu.edu/howto/windows/ssh-port-tunneling-with-putty/
For example to access the Tableau server at: https://10.80.7.94 you need to:
1) In Putty
Under Add new forwarded port:, enter the following information:
Source port: [port on local machine] (Source port: 8443)
Destination: [hostname of ccis machine]:[port on ccis machine] (Destination: 10.80.7.94:443)
Click Add button.
2) Under Add new forwarded port:, enter the following information:Then connect to MI via this Putty.
3) Then access Tableau via url in web browser: https://localhost:8443
Also this technique is useful to reach MI instances that are behind a firewall - https://subdomain.metricinsights.com, Destination will look like subdomain.metricinsights.com:443.

The first thing you should check is if the dimension values of the dimension assigned to the element are 'visible' (Show as Tile) http://prntscr.com/9lwlra
MI will only display tiles on the home page for dimension values that are set to 'visible'. To find the current settings, edit your dimension (http://img.mtrc.in/100d0J0b0H3k) and then check the dimension values grid at the bottom fo the page (http://img.mtrc.in/1y0s1i2C1p2A). You can adjust the visibility settings individually (http://img.mtrc.in/3J1o0v1H1p0H) or en masse (http://img.mtrc.in/251s2A1S0m39).
