Display Html from dbfs files

Hi,

I want to display some content from dbfs inside my notebook. Let's say I have a image under: /dbfs/mnt/test-bucket/test-custom/sample.png

I want to embed that into my Notebook Html Output like this:

displayHTML("""<img src ='/dbfs/mnt/test-bucket/test-custom/sample.png'>""")

But the image does not show up. In the browser console, I see a Error 401 with access denied?

Any help is appreciated.

@Sebastian Schueler​ :

The error you are seeing is likely due to a permissions issue. By default, files in DBFS are private and can only be accessed by the user who uploaded them. To display an image in the notebook, you will need to make sure that the file is accessible to the user who is running the notebook.

Hi @Vidula Khanna​ ,

unfortunately not. I can access the file through the notebook via e.g.

!ls /dbfs/mnt/test-bucket/test-custom/ 

but it cannot be displayed via the displayHTML, with the 401.
