SSRS External images URLs from reporting server not working

Roman Rudziejewski 0 Reputation points

Pictures URLs are pulled to my report thru expression / parameter / and displayed properly on Visual Studio when in design and preview mode. Once deployed to server they are not. I spent hours over net to search for solution. Unattended user is set and confirmed, pictures URLS access is not restricted and unlimited as those are they same our webshop pulls from, MIMET is set. The URL is displayed by all browsers when entered directly.I even set a textbox next to picture to see if the exression gets proper URL and in proper format. Yes it does. Despite all of the setting that I believe walked thru hundreds of time web server still does not get the proper URL to display (I checked thru browser html code. When deploying report to server still warning pop ups (see attached picture) Please anyone help me to find the reason. Attaching pics with warning info, local report view and web server view, User's image

Please anyone help me to find the reason. Thanks in advance Roman

    Hi @Roman Rudziejewski,

    For an image on a report server in native mode, type a relative path to the image in the Use this image box-for example, ../images/image1.jpg.

    For an image on any Web site (including a report server in SharePoint integrated mode), type a full URL to the image in the Use this image box: for example, https://\<SharePointservername>/\<site>/Documents/images/image1.jpg.

    In addition, if you have set the Unattended Execution Account for the report server, please remember to re-start the report server.
