Report builder showing external images in Design Mode Only

I am trying to run a report with an image column (external web service images) and all I get are Red X's for the images. The images show fine in Power BI and also I can see them in design mode (single image only), but when I run the report they stop showing.

 

eg. https://valeformsprod.blob.core.windows.net:443/form-response-attachments/area-634/form-5446/1131b3f...

 

Design Mode:

Hi SASCHOE,

Sorry no, I changed to links and moved on.

If the image allows unauthenticaed access, you can set it as an expression. ="https://cdn.pixabay.com/photo/2016/10/10/16/48/dragonfly-1729157_1280.jpg" for example.

Hi bradsy,

It's works when I'm in design mode, the image displays. But when I run my report, there is still a red cross in preview mode.

I saw a few post and explanation about allowing unauthenticafed access but I did not figure out how it works, how to set up in power bi report builder. Can you help me ?

If the link works in a web browser without having to authenticate, then it should work in preview too. Can you try it as an expression? ="imagelink"

The link works well in a web browser but still not in preview mode even if I put the link as an expression.
