how to render the image stored in Azure Blob in Powerbi desktop without downloading it

All the images are stored in azure blob and the content type is binary. I want to render those images in powerbi desktop without actually downlaoding in Powerbi. Basically converting URL to display the image.

folder&Name&"SasToken" this method worked. I need M query template to automatically fetch SAS token from azure blob. Any template available?

@meet1291 you can dynamically construct the url and then set its category to image URL and it should work. You have to have a logic on how your files are saved and construct the URL based on it:

 

for example, if you have product table like this:

A

B

C

 

and image files are stored with the same A.png, B.png, C.png , you can create a column something like this:

 

Image URL = 
VAR __baseURL = "blob storage path"
VAR __imageURL = __baseURL + Table[Product] + ".png"
RETURN
__imageURL
