Add an image
If you have the correct permissions, you can add custom images to your dashboards, or use an image as a dashboard background. You can upload an image or reference an image by URL.
Upload an image
When you upload an image, it is stored in the KV store. Because of this, only Enterprise admins, Cloud sc_admins, and power users can upload or delete images. If you don't have the correct role assigned to upload images, you can ask someone with the correct role to add it for you. The following formats are supported for uploading an image:
Reference an image by URL
Users with any permission set or role can add an image to their dashboard by referencing a URL. You can reference a local image or link to an image URL using the absolute layout. You cannot add an image if you are using the grid layout.
Relative image URL
PNG and PDF exports include images referenced by a relative URL. The following is an example of a relative image URL.
External image URL
PNG and PDF exports cannot download images referenced by an external URL. To ensure these images render in a PNG or PDF export, save them to a local directory and upload them to your dashboard, if you have the correct permissions. The following is an example of an external URL.
Add an external URL to the Dashboards Trusted Domains List
The Dashboards Trusted Domains List is a list of authorized URL domains that aids the management of external images. Images without a domain specified in the list will not render in the dashboard. To permit an external image, you can add the image's URL domain to the list.
For more Splunk Cloud Platform related details, see Configure Dashboards Trusted Domains List and Content Security Policy setting in the Splunk Cloud Platform Admin Manual.
For Splunk Enterprise details, see Configure Dashboards Trusted Domains List and Content Security Policy setting in the Splunk Enterprise Admin Manual.
