Dashboard Image Tile: Dropbox Images only showing for Dropbox owner

Hello, 

 

I am creating a Dashboard, and adding Image Tiles to show hyperlinked images. My images are coming from my DropBox account.

I can see the images on the tiles when I build the dashboard; however, no one else can. My co-workers all report that they can't see the images. The Custom Link (hyperlink) that I assigned to the tiles are all working, but why am I the only one who can actually see the images?

 

Thanks,

JC

Thanks v-lionel-msft, 

 

So the problem stemmed from the Image URL from DropBox. Evidently, there are a few ways to go about it.

 

The way I had to do it was:

In DropBox

Open the Folder with the Images

Next to the Image File needed, click on the three dots button

Select Share

A pop-up Window will appear

At the bottom of this window, Select Create Link

Next Select Copy Link

 

In Power BI

Open the Dashboard or Create a New One in the desired App.

Add a New Tile and Select Image as the option

Add a Title and write out the Report Name

In the Image URL field:

Paste the Copied Image Link from DropBox

Edit the final part of the link:

Change "?id=0" To "?raw=1"

This will allow the Image preview to render for all users.

 

The process is a little lengthy, but actually goes pretty quick once you get used to doing it.

 

Hope this helps other users.

 

Cheers,

JCC

Hi @JCLink8888 ,

"My co-workers all report that they can't see the images."

You mean your co-workers can open the dashboard that you shared with them but not the content, right?

Did you set RLS for the tiles?

Could you show me related error tips when your co-workers open the dashboard?

There may be many reasons for this situation, so if we can locate the specific cause, it will be better to solve.

 

Best regards,
