The external tile supports embedding images, videos or content from external tools/data such as PowerBI, Tableau, PI Vision, P&IDs, 3D CAD models, etc. into a dashboard.
In order to give system administrators strict control over which content is allowed to be embedded, a dedicated administration screen has been added to ConfigHub. On this screen, administrators will be able to specify domains from which external content is allowed.
Note: When specifying allowed domains, the use of wildcards makes it easy to allow entire domains or subdomains.
- The use of “*” in a URL allows any variation of the same URL, without extending the path (so “www.mydomain.com/* will allow the use of “www.mydomain.com/extension1” in an external content tile, but not “www.mydomain.com/extension1/extension2”).
- The use of “**” in a URL allows any variation of the same URL, even with path extensions (so “www.mydomain.com/**” would allow “www.mydomain.com/extension1/extension2/...” to be used in an external content tile).
