Re: Displaying images from sharepoint online list or folder

I have the same problem, so I ran some tests:

 

  • Internet Explorer 11: Fail
  • FireFox Quantum: Fail
  • MS Edge: Pass
  • Chrome: Pass

 

So the verdict is, if you want to display images from Sharepoint Online in a Power BI report, then browse with Edge or Chrome.

Re: Displaying images from sharepoint online list or folder

@chromo4130  I still have no issues in a desktop browser though I find that you do have to authorize sharepoint for the user before the images start to appear.  The pages I've created have links to the images as well as the images.  So I've told the users, if you see a broken link where the image should be, click the link which will open the image in SharePoint and force authorization, then refresh the report in Power BI and the images appear.

 

I stopped trying to get the app to work some time ago but seeing this note I may go back and look to see whether I can get it going.  

 

I thought the message from @xerxel was interesting as while the end user normally uses chrome I tested Explorer 11 and Firefox and had no issues.

 

Hope this helps.

Mike

Re: Displaying images from sharepoint online list or folder

I confirm I’m facing the same problem. Have you tried the workaround offered by the PG team?

Regarding the workaround you’re suggesting, let’s be serious.. we’re in 2019 and any solution you develop should be browser/device agnostic. In 2005 I would have accepted those workaround but today there is no way to deliver a solution where you can ask your user to use a specific platform to visualize a report..

Re: Displaying images from sharepoint online list or folder

@alexdurok , I was able to force authentication in Chrome today, but not in IE. Other workarounds I've seen have suggested removing any permissions from the SharePoint library links, which is not a viable solution for most enterprise users. Very disappointing functionality.

Re: Displaying images from sharepoint online list or folder

Hi @rvgfox 

 

I never solved it in terms of using SharePoint as the source for the images.  That app has huge usage so we are talking about testing the images in Azure blob storage with the metadata stored in AzureSql which should address the issue.
