Display image taken from Salesforce



I'm trying to display images stored in Salesforce as a custom object attachment.

As I can not query the attachent object URL directly, I just create a shareable link of the picture from salesforce and paste in into a Text or URL field in my custom object. Then, I query the object and get the URL in my powerbi Column.


When using the table visual or any other visual, it shows the following icon, which means it does not work 


Here is what I've tried :

  • Format the URL column as an image URL format
  • Use the public link created by Salesforce : Here is the link
  • Use the direct image link from the public link (right click on the image from public link > Open in new tab) : Here is the link
  • Try both "URL" and "Text" field types from salesforce.
  • Check if the URL was troncated due to column limit in Powerbi or whatsoever. It is not.
  • Check image size : Only 380Ko so I think this should work.

As those links does not require  any salesforce authentification, I would expect them to work but unfortunately it does not...


Any ideas?

Many thanks for your help!
