Some of your users are experiencing an issue where images on their internal website are not consistently appearing for all users. While some users can see the images, others may only see blank spaces. When trying to access the image directly via a provided link, they receive an
Unauthorized error message.
This problem is typically due to the original image being referred from a hidden document/source, which regular users do not have permission to view. The issue can be resolved by re-uploading the image as a static resource that is accessible to everyone. Here are the steps to do so:
- Identify the image that is causing the issue.
- Re-upload this image as a static resource on your website.
- Ensure that the permissions for this static resource are set to be accessible to all users.
To avoid this issue in the future, use an image from a document or static resource that is accessible to everyone for such tiles.
