Re: Media Library

Hi Teresa Hooper,

In the Management console you have a tab which says "Content Library". If you upload the image to the default folder in this tab(This implicitly stores the image to the servers repository),then the image will show up and can be used in any application or sheet.

If you want to restrict access, you can do so using the security rules.

Thanks,

Re: Media Library

Thank you for replying - but I am only use QSense Desktop not Qlikview - and I didnt think QSense on the desktop has a management console - is that correct.

I did get around it my putting the picture in the default drive  - although does not explain why I don't have an Upload File in the images area when I create an text/image box.

Re: Media Library

Hello,

If you want to add a picture to sheets or the app you can do it in Desktop. See below.

Re: Media Library

There should be an option to upload a file in the bottom left hand corner.

I need it to.  I think it might be an issue with the release as it seems strange its missing.

Re: Media Library

Hi Teresa,

Just to confirm, Have you placed the images in "C:\Users\<User Name>\Documents\Qlik\Sense\Content\Default" folder?

This is where the images are picked up from.

For Qlik Sense Desktop: You can place images in the following folder on your computer: C:\Users\<user>\Documents\Qlik\Sense\Content\Default. Images will be available in the default folder in the media library.
