Using Power BI to Report on Hyperlink Fields in SharePoint online

Hello,

I am having troubles on displaying images (logos) in my PowerBi dashboard from an online sharepoint list column (LogoURL)  Below is a screenshot on how the brands are displaying

I followed those steps:

  1. I configured my Sharepoint column as following:

2. I set the data category as Image URL in PowerBi

 

Thanks,

Re: Using Power BI to Report on Hyperlink Fields in SharePoint online

Hi @Manai 

As tested, if i add image, link columns in a sharepoint list followed this,

image column

Capture8.JPG

link column

Capture9.JPG

Then edit the two columns as below

Capture7.JPG

 

Then connect to the list with Power BI Desktop

enter the link below in the "Sharepoint online list" connector

https://***sharepoint.com/sites/sitename

Then select the liarabry name, select Transform, i will find the column "image" in Edit queries, click on the record to expand the cell,

In my test, "image" and "url" column all work.
Please ensure if changing the type to "image" in Sharepoint can help.
Also, please ensure the link is not encrypted.
