Hello Devs,

Help please.

I remember I have read that we can display external websites on a CRM form using an IFrame.

So I have just simply added an IFrame to the form, set the URL to (in design mode), remove the cross frame scripting security check. But it is not showing google page in an IFrame.

Error message in IE:

This content cannot be displayed in a frame. To help protect the security of information you enter into this website, the publisher of this content does not allow it to be displayed in a frame.

Error message in Chrome:

Refused to display '<URL>' in a frame because it set 'X-Frame-Options' to 'sameorigin'.

I also tried adding and in the trusted sites zone.

Ultimately, I need to show a sharepoint document (image) on CRM form.

Have you tried to point your IFrame to sharepoint and not google? Google website just doesn't allow to embed itself to internal websites.

Yes, at first I was trying with SharePoint itself. But the outcome was same.

I tried with LinkedIn and it failed. Then I tried with a local newspaper website and it PASSED :).

So apparenlty, it seems any security check or so from SharePoint website side?

If you're using Sharepoint Online I'm afraid you will no be able to do that but if you're onprem you will have to make following modification -

Do we have any other way to surface a SharePoint hosted image document on a D365/CRM form?

I don't see any easy way then develop that functionality from a scratch.
