SharePoint image url only works in My Workspace but not other workspaces

I have a SharePoint Online List on a site, name it as "site A". I attach images in List items. Power BI connects the List and has the absolute URLs for those images, something like "CompanyName.sharepoint.com/sites/A/Attachments/1/xxx.jpg"

 

If I publish the report to My Workspace, the image URL works fine. However, if I publish to the public workspace, say "site A", where the data source (List) is, the report can't show images but only the broken icons.

 

Why it behaves differently in the different workspace? Thanks.

Thanks @V-lianl-msft  for the quick response.

 

Need to apologise, as I found the issue was due to my carelessness. The reason that images can't display on the report published to "site A" is due to the wrongly converted absolute URL. And the report on My Workspace used another dataset with correct URL conversion.

 

I thought they're the same, but it's not... after I realised it and corrected the image URL, the images are able to display.

 

Again, to everyone, sorry about that...
