Has anyone used a pdf file to load/open as part of a dashboard?
(Not a link to the pdf file)
Thanks in advance.
Do you mean use an iframe to display a PDF document as part of your dashboard?
If so, this has to be enable through settings in the web.conf file.
[settings] dashboard_html_allow_embeddable_content = true dashboard_html_allow_iframes = true dashboard_html_allowed_domains = <list of allowed domains>
Also take into account that displaying PDFs is not a Splunk interface functionality but rather something that might be (or not, depending on the version) implemented on the browser side. And might probably be disabled in some browsers.
Yes. That is correct.
And iframe is the way I found to load a pdf file. However, it does not seem to work properly.
My files are located under the appserver/static directory of the application.
Thanks for the advise on web.conf.
I failed to mention that the platform is in Splunk Cloud. That conf seems to be intended on system level. Is that right?
