This article explains how you can embed images from an external drive (Google Drive) to the Sisense widget. 

Note: The solution is implemented with the help of the Blox plugin and on the L2023.3 Sisense version. 

In order to embed an image into the Blox widget, you need to make sure that the Blox plugin is enabled on your instance. To do so:

1. Open the Admin tab.

2. Navigate to Add-ons page (Server & Hardware). 

3. Toggle the Blox plugin on. Make sure it's triggered the plugins rebuild. 


Once the Blox plugin is enabled, navigate to Analytics tab -> create a new Blox widget and import the template attached by clicking 3 dots menu in the Blox edit mode:



Once it's done, you need to update the following part of the template:

<img src='URL to the image'></img>
In our case, the image is hosted on the Google Drive so that we put the URL to the image on the Google Drive. It's displayed in a widget as on the screenshot below:
The Blox template is attached to this guide. 
Feel free to use this template as an example to create your own widgets using the Blox plugin. 


If your Google Drive URL gives a 403 error{img-ID}

change it to{img-ID}
