How do I render an image on a local network path on a Splunk dashboard?

Path Finder

I have a Splunk server that's running on an internal intranet and I would like to display an image in a block on a dashboard.
When I refer to the image, Splunk automatically converts my \ into %5C.

e.g. \\hostname\server\image.png gets turned into %5C%5Chostname%5Cserver%5Cimage.png.

How can I get splunk to just embed the image?

Hi chustar,

You can put your image in the etc/apps/YourAppName/appserver/static folder and use it in the dashboard:

  <row>
    <panel>
      <html>
      <p>
        <img src="/static/app/YourAppName/image.png" align="left" height="75" width="75"/>
      </p>
     </html>
    </panel>
  </row>

Hope this helps ...

cheers, MuS

Thanks for the suggestion, but the images are hosted on our internal network, and the link is generated based on data in our splunk dashboard. So the path in the dashboard looks like: \\hostname\$var1$\$var2$\image.png.

I assume this could be done with some css and/or js hacks, but not out of the box as far as I know - sorry.
