PowerBI and Sharepoint Image Permission Integration
When using a SharePoint Online list as a data source in PowerBI, image links do not work unless you are revealing the PowerBI dashboard inside a SharePoint page. (for more details, see links to PowerBI community discussions at the bottom of this post)
The only way to make them work today is to change the permissions individually, at an item-level, for every linked image. This is not practical.
Essentially, my dashboard works within SharePoint, but not PowerBI natively, and I am not able to consider extending it to other products such as Cortana.
I could go through all sorts of rigamarole with Flow to auto copy all images to an outside service like Dropbox, but that would be silly, and would compromise my data security model and governance.
Please extend permissions for a list's linked images through to PowerBI.
