Dashboard rendering fails if dashboard contains external images

Hi All,

I am using Grafana with InfluxDB to visualize my OpenHab-Based SmartHome system which really rocks. But I am facing the following problem with the render plugin - rendering a dashboard works like a charm but when the dashboard contains a text visualization which I use to embed external webcam pictures (code example

) the rendering fails with a timeout.

Thanks

It sounds like Grafana does not have access to the external image. That’s the first thing I would check.

You might also turn on debug logging to see if you can get more information about the failure.

Hi Diana,

thanks for the hint - I enabled debug logging and I can see the following lines in the log

Unfortunately, that hits the limit of my technical knowledge on this one. Hopefully this additional info helps you figure it out.
