Reference Local Image URL in the visual

Hi Everyone,

 

I have just checked that if we provide a local path of image to Power BI, it doesn't render image in the visual.

I have tried this on Image by Cloudscope visual.

 

My dataset looks like below:

Timestamp                 Image URL

11/27/17 12:30:46D:\Projects\Images\5b346ccd0081ca3a2040a4ba_faceRecognition_1530168233925.jpg

In Modellling tab, I selected Data Category as Image URL for my ImageURL column also. But it doesn't work.

 

Can anyone let me know any workaround for this?

I have found the answer.

In case someone drops by to this issue, you need to host the folder in which you have images on IIS.

Thats it.
