do not perform file extension check when adding image url in dashboard

As a Dashboard Designer, I want to be able to host my dashboard images on a global sharing service, so that I do not have to set up my own web server.

When I use free services like dropbox, box, google drive, microsoft drive, the image is not displayed because the public link is not ending with "gif" (or any supported image format).

The Anaplan message is "the url is invalid. the image type must be .jpg .jpeg .gif .png", 

with the following image url : https://www.dropbox.com/s/ei8xxo4e2vlm010/atp01.gif?raw=1

The key benefit would be to ease the usage of images in dashboards.

Hi g.ganivet

A workaround is to add "#xxx.gif" at en end of the image's url.

In your case, use https://www.dropbox.com/s/ei8xxo4e2vlm010/atp01.gif?raw=1#xxx.gif instead of https://www.dropbox.com/s/ei8xxo4e2vlm010/atp01.gif?raw=1
