Has anyone been able to get auth protected images to load in a dashboard?
1- basic auth configured in apache:
<VirtualHost *:80> <Directory "/var/www/html/mysite"> AuthType Basic AuthName "My Site" AuthUserFile /etc/apache2/.htpasswd Require valid-user </Directory> </VirtualHost>
2- Accessing the site's files using https://myuser:mypassword@mysite:portnumber/path/to/file.png from a private/incognito window works using tested mainstream browsers
3- But the same URL doesn't work when entered in the Image URL field of an Image template in a HE dashboard: displays the broken image icon in the rendered dashboard.
4- Interestingly enough, when right-clicking on the broken-pic icon and selecting "Open Image in new tab", the image displays fine in the new tab.
Is there a trick to be able to load auth-protected pictures in the dashboard? Using other authentication schemes is fine in case that helps. Can't have the web site open to public since these auto-generated pictures concern my property.
