Hi All,

I want to embed a news feed video in my dashboard, but the examples I've tried to copy that have an embedded YouTube video don't work. There is no video showing https://splunkonbigdata.com/2018/09/22/embedding-google-search-engine-in-splunk-dashboard/

Thanks in advance,

Russell

Which version of Splunk are you on?

Have you tried the following: https://community.splunk.com/t5/Splunk-Enterprise/How-to-use-iframe-in-Splunk-8-x/td-p/467598

Thanks for the reply. I'm using 8.0.4.1

The link seems to have the same issue that I do. The page just doesn't appear and seems to be a limitation of version 8 😞

Hi @russellfavell!

Check out this post: https://community.splunk.com/t5/Splunk-Enterprise/How-to-use-iframe-in-Splunk-8-x/m-p/467603/highlig...

Essentially, you'll need your admins to look at the web.conf to allow the features you're looking for.

Thanks @efavreau ,

Looks like 

dashboard_html_allow_embeddable_content = <boolean> 

was the one (the others were default True.

 

So, a step  forward, can embed a webpage, but videos don't play on Sky News (BBC News won't load) or YouTube embedded video. Any idea if there is another setting that is required to allow videos?

 

Cheers,

 

Russell
