API as a source of external image

I want to show an image in my report that is generated on the server. I have an endpoint that does it. It looks like this: https://localhost:5001/getImage. IN the design pan I see the image, but when I run it I get red X. Published report shows nothing at all. Any idea?

Thanks

    Hi @Zolotoy ,
    For SSRS reports that reference external images (that is, images that are not stored in the database or in the report itself), I must remind you that for the file path, please make sure that you have the permissions of the SSRS service account and the Unattended account. You may want to consider pulling the files down to your local report server if performance issues prevail when the report retrieves images.
    And is there any information about the operation in the error log file? In addition to displaying red X when running, are there any more error messages?
    Best Regards,
    Joy
