When trying to display dashboard with SolarWinds data on a monitor, why am I unable to Add Custom URL?

I'm new to Slideshow. i have a monitor that displays some SolarWinds dashboards, and I'd like to use the Add Custom URL to add a SolarWinds dashboard to the list. I've tried to add it with no luck. i just get a blank page once its on that list item. I inspected it when its running and found this:
Refused to display 'https://solarwinds********' in a frame because it set 'X-Frame-Options' to 'sameorigin'.

I've added the option x_frame_options_sameorigin = false to the web.conf, but this has not resolved the issue.

Anyone have an answer or a fix?

This is due to a restriction in Solarwinds' website which prevents your web-browser from showing the frame. To make it work, Solarwinds would need to change their website to not include the 'X-Frame-Options' header value of 'same-origin'.

Yup that was a fix, i found it just after i posted the question. Here is the exact Solarwinds doc on how to disable this.
