Hi Splunkers,

 

Has anyone used a pdf file to load/open as part of a dashboard?

(Not a link to the pdf file)

 

Thanks in advance.

Kind Regards,

Ariel

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.

HI @ITWhisperer 

 

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? 

 

Best Regards,

Ariel

Yes, web.conf is in etc/system/local and you may not be able to change it for cloud so easily if at all.
