RDLC report does not render external image while using HTTPS RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    this is an old issue never resolved.

    The RDLC report viewer does not render external images when the external url is using SSL (ie: https://www.acme.com/images/image.jpg")

    Changing the external url to http the image is rendered as expected.
    We are using the IIS "URL Rewriting" module to move all requests to HTTPS, therefore we cannot call the images using http because there are url-rewrited down to https.

    I tried to pass a file:\\<absolute path to image>, but it works only when viewed on local browser (where the absolute path is...)

    Any idea on how to solve the problem?

  • Since you mentioned the browser this sounds like an ASP.NET app and therefore you're trying to use the report viewer in ASP.NET. Please post your question over in the ASP.NET forums.
