HTML Object show on designer, but not in map



Your Vote:



I have a map which i show on a screen with the external link (no login required).

Now i added a "self html" object, which i filled with an iframe of a webpage. The iframe is showing correctly on the mapdesigner of the Enterprise Console. I can edit and place it, all good. But, it doesn't show up on the map through the external link! I only see a very thin frame in the location where the iframe should be.

Are there exclusions for maps showing through links without required login?

the html code i used in "HTML before" is this: --- <iframe width="430" height="800" src=";pw=XXX" style="-webkit-transform:scale(0.7);-moz-transform-scale(0.7);"></iframe> ---

another thing that can cause the problem: the "&" in my URL is transformed to "&amp;" in the mapdesigner field. I cannot add the html without the transformation to "&amp;" happens.

Hello there,

Talked to development about this, sorry it took longer as expected. Ampersand (&) is being replaced due to security reasons. The link however should work anyway with this replacement. The reason that iframes are not being displayed is in most cases because of mixed HTTP/HTTPS content on the site which many browser deny.

Kind regards.
