I'm currently using a digital asset management tool that allows us to host images as a CDN.

The DAM allows us to crop and position the image using URL parameters (example: https://embed.widencdn.net/img/du/ewjtweqh77/1800x714px/CampusScenics_0279.jpg?crop=yes&position=c), however, when I try to remote file upload (in entity browser) this image, I get an error message that tells me that the file has to be a .jpg or .png.

enter image description here

If you take a look at the URL, you can clearly see it's a .jpg image but for some reason, the validator is registering this as a non .jpg. I tried appending the last 3 characters of the URL (n=c) but that doesn't work, also there might be various different parameters depending on the image and how it's changed in the DAM so that wouldn't be a consistent solution even if it did.

Does anyone have any suggestions for this? I understand that I can embed this image in CKEditor but the solution for this ask needs to be an enhancement (or work around) to this remote file upload issue as we use this file upload process for all of our paragraph components.

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

  • I tried the URL you had pasted in the question and then appended n=1.jpg to the end of the URL. It looks like the CDN provider does not care about additional querystrings. It also looks like the validator is expecting the extension to appear at the end of the URL. embed.widencdn.net/img/du/ewjtweqh77/1800x714px/… So it might work if you try by appending n=1.jpg at the end of the URL Can you please try and get back? – anoopjohn Nov 3 at 1:54
