Image-URL not rendering in powerBI Report

Hi Community,

 

I need some help on the following. 

I've made a report with a matrix visual containing some pictures. The pictures are hosted by a third party and are anonymously accessible. In my desktop file the URL is created by following statement:


= Table.AddColumn(Bron, "ItemURL", each "<public web url>"& [ItemNo_]&".jpg")

Creating this Column:

In desktop I can see all pictures in my visual. I've set the data type to Image-URL

All works fine so far but when I publish my report to the power bi service the images don't render. 

When I click on the (broken) image Icon it does open the URL and shows me the picture in a new tab.

Also when I export my report to a .pdf file the image's are there again. Images are 200 kB a piece approximately.

I've tried different browsers but all give the same results. Please let me know if any of you experienced anything similar or know a solution. 
Thanks in advance!
Regards,


Koen

@Koense  when it's showing the broken images, please in the browser check the html source code. In Chrome and Edge you can click right and use the "Inspect Element" feature.

 

Check there the URL of the missing pictures. There must be an error somewhere.

Hey @Koense ,

 

is the website public accessible without a login?

 

Best regards

Hi @selimovd ,

 

Yes, I've also tried the different URL's in private mode in different browsers. All work fine.

Hi @selimovd ,

 

Thanks a lot, I do have direction now as to where to go! It indeed returned a 403 error from the host of the pictures. Then I tried opening the link on another website and seems that the host has some sort of hotlink protection. Contacted them to see if this resolves the issue. Thanks for your time!
