There is a browser setting to allow mixed content. But this is not a solution for production.
You need to convert the source to secure content.

But this will be specific to one particular user not for everyone if i am not wrong.

 There is zero information in the question. There is only a reference to a support note that provides a hint to change settings or create a whitelist in certain cases. 

  1. There is no hint at all what the external content used is.
  2. There is no description of the observed behavior.
  3. There is no error description or anything else.
  4. There is no hint that the support note is even relevant for the case or if it was used.
The support note covers a case where security settings prevent the dashboard to access external content, because it is not on a whitelist. It does not cover unreachable pages, false certificates. There are other places where white or blacklists come in to play. The support note does not cover logins that might be required for the external content. If the external content requires a login, then there is no way around it and the external content widget will likely not be able to access and display the external content behind the authentication.

If you think there is a valid support case, please reach out to support. Please be aware that the information provided in the question is not even close to what is required by support. But they can at least make you provide the data and logs needed.
