links to url "www.google.com" works fine, but links like "file://server/folder/file.xlm" don't work in my dashboard.
Dashboard looks like:
form, row, panel, html, div
link (url and file)
for example: < a href="file://server/folder/file.xlm" target="_blank"> Name < /a>
/div, /html, /panel ,/row
.. more row's including content (tables). ..
Chrome throws me this error:
Not allowed to load local resource: file://server/folder/file.xlm
Can you please try this?
< a href="http://file://server/folder/file.xlm" target="_blank"> Name < /a>
HI @SimonWa ,
Due to security reasons, these file links cannot be opened directly from web page (But yes we can access from It splunk server. check below suggestion).
Can you please let me know the reason or requirement of opening local files?
If you want to access files from shared location then I suggest:
1) Mount shared location at Splunk instance (because mount shared location at user machine is not preferable).
2) Create a web endpoint which read file open at client web browser. Splunk provides custom endpoints.
Please check below URL for custom endpoint example.
I hope it will help you.
