Embedded content

The embedded content element allows you to embed documents, images, video, or other web content into your dashboard. There are two options for configuring embedded content: static and feature. When you configure the element to be static, you only need the URL of the content to be embedded. When you configure the content to be by features, the element is data driven and you need to identify a data source. This means that each feature's attribute information can be used to dynamically construct a URL at run time. When configured by features, the embedded element can be the target of an action.

Considerations for embedding content

Before you embed content into your dashboard, it's recommended that you verify the source of your content. Ensure that you are respecting any terms of use. Some websites restrict embedding. This is a choice that some organizations make to protect their content from misuse by third-party users. If this is the case, you can link to the content using HTML.

URL references should use HTTPS. If an HTTPS connection is not possible, consider using a relative URL, which doesn't specify HTTPS or HTTP. For example, use //www.example.com/content.html. If the URL references a domain that differs from your organization, the server hosting the requested resources must support CORS requests from your organization.


If you're having trouble embedding content and are familiar with your browser's development tools, you can troubleshoot by monitoring the network traffic. You may see error messages for mixed content or embed restrictions. In the latter case, look for a property named X-Frame-Options in the response header.
