Ah yes I can see "Upload", only in Qlik Sense Enterprise and Qlik Sense Cloud Qlik Sense - Bundle Images with your apps - YouTube
Michael makes the distinction very clear:
So within Qlik Sense Desktop you have to manually copy the file to that location.
Well what's been added to Qlik Sense 2.1, is in Enterprise as well as Qlik Sense Cloud, you can actually Upload an image file that is local on your desktop, to your server, and include it as part of that app...
With Qlik Sense Desktop, you must copy images manually into the location where the product was installed. By default we install it into the users' My Documents directory. Then there are the subdirectories "Qlik\Sense\Content\Default". You can copy your JPGs, PNGs, GIFs in there. You can also create any combinations of subfolders...
My whole question may be a duplicate and can be deleted:
However, even the videos I posted suggested that using Qlik Sense Enterprise (I'll say, Qlik Sense Enterprise hosted on a Server ... which has QMC and everything), that I should see the "Upload File" button in lower-left.
I do, but my colleague doesn't.
This answer suggests I could use QMC directly:
The attached screenshot shows the two techniques:
1) QMC (left, in blue)
2) via App (right, in red)
I can do both options, but my colleague can do neither. So now my question is, what Security/Access rule decides the ability to upload here?
Now I learned that the Content Library I was referring to (see above, "Default")
It had certain default rules applied to it, as seen here:
Since I was a Root Admin, it allowed me to UPDATE that Content Library. My colleague was not a Root Admin.
I could change the rules as described here so my colleague could get access:
In summary, different ways to do the same thing, different techniques whether on "Enterprise" vs "Desktop"
And sometime later maybe I can appreciate the differences that Michael begins to discuss the differences between having images as part of the app (aka "App contents" aka "In app") and not (aka "Default"? aka "Generic?")
Inside Qlik Sense Enterprise, for your reference, when you have an app with attached or bundled images, they're associated with that app as additional content, so if I select this (app) by double-clicking it, you'll notice on the side under properties you'll have "App Contents"
Hi Nathaniel. What rule specifically controls the "Upload Media" button? I thought the "In App" and "Default" libraries were separate. In fact, there is no "In App" library to create a rule against in the QMC. Are you saying that if I modify the security rule for default, the button will show up?
I actually need to open this ability up to everyone. If someone is creating a story for a client, they need the ability to add the client's logo to the story. Could I just handle this by making everyone a content admin? If I make everyone a content admin, is there any real issues with that? There's no access outside of the content libraries so it would only be images, right?
