Display Image from Microsoft One Drive folder

Hi community,

i've got a big problem with display image on OneDrive  folder.

 

With SharePoint connector in PBI desktop i connect the onedrive account and i insert the following link:

https://mydomain-my.sharepoint.com/personal/user_mydomain_com

 

The result is the following

I merge the fields "Folder Path" (https://mydomain-my.sharepoint.com/personal/user_mydomain_com) and "name" (filename.jpg) and i obtain a new field called URL with the entire path of image:

https://mydomain-my.sharepoint.com/personal/user_mydomain_com\filename.jpg

 

The problem is this:

On PBI Desktop the image aren't displayed. (but this isn't a great problem...).

On PBI Service some image are displayed but other aren't displayed. (see image below).

Hi @FilippoV

 

Firstly, you need to change the URL to Image URL type in Power BI Desktop.

In addition, in Power BI Desktop, images work for URL that over web not local path, you can review the following example.

Please check if there is something different between the URL that some could display,some couldn't display.

Re: Display Image from Microsoft One Drive folder

Hello @v-piga-msft,

 

Thank you for your reply.

 

The field URL is already a Image URL type and it's also a web link (https://mydomain-my.sharepoint.com/personal/user_mydomain_com\filename.jpg).
