I am Uploading the Image from LWC page by using lightning-file-upload and Making the Image as Public accessible as Below

ContentVersion cv = [select id from contentversion where contentdocumentid =:documentId];
ContentDistribution cd = new ContentDistribution();
cd.Name = 'Test';
cd.ContentVersionId = cv.id;
cd.PreferencesAllowViewInBrowser= true;
cd.PreferencesAllowOriginalDownload= true;
insert cd;
SELECT DistributionPublicUrl FROM ContentDistribution WHERE ContentDocumentId

Sample URL: https://psas--sandboxone.my.salesforce.com/sfc/p/6w0000008jRU/a/6w000000Gn7s/Lic0.Hgi5VwyYli3xJcMMjJs6mauT7fSWxUCTROTjyc

If I use the above URL in HTML img tag, Image is not showing, Can anyone Please help me solve this issue

<div class="slds-align_absolute-center">
                                       <img style="-ms-interpolation-mode:bicubic;border:none;max-width:100%;outline:none;width: 250px;vertical-align: bottom;"
  • That URL is likely for the page that will load the image not the image itself. The image url in you case is psas--sandboxone--c.documentforce.com/sfc/dist/version/…

Instead of DistributionPublicUrl Use ContentDownloadUrl

SELECT ContentDownloadUrl FROM ContentDistribution WHERE ContentDocumentId

You must get the ContentDownloadURL in the Image Source of the Site that you want to use.

  • Works as a charm I tried many hours using DistributionPublicUrl this showed the image from direct URL but not in LWC. And your solution of using ContentDownloadUrl saved my day! Commented Apr 22 at 5:43
