Howto embed images in QVF with Qlik Sense Server

Hi,

in the Qlik Sense 2.0 release notes I just saw, the following interesting changes:

Qlik Sense Desktop

Move apps

When you save an app that you have created in Qlik Sense Desktop, the images included in the app are bundled together with the rest of the contents of the app. This makes it easier to share an app with another Qlik Sense Desktop user.

and

Qlik Engine API

Images can be embedded in a qvf file

Images can be embedded in qvf files. For example, you can add a thumbnail in a qvf file or embed an image in a generic object.

New structs:

  • StaticContentUrl

  • StaticContentUrlDef

Updated methods:

  • SetAppProperties method

  • GetAppProperties method

  • GetAppLayout method

For some reason I expected the images bundled with a QVF file to be available in Qlik Sense Server as well, but this unfortunately doesn't work as expected.

Is there any way to access the bundled content from the Qlik Sense Hub? Or is this a Desktop only feature?

Best regards

Re: Howto embed images in QVF with Qlik Sense Server

‌Hi Daniel,

In Qlik Sense 2.0, you have to manually import the images to the default content library in QMC to see them in the app.

In Qlik Sense 2.1.1, the bundled (or in app) images are automatically visible when importing the app to the server.

To avoid the manually steps to import the images, the easiest way is to just upgrade to 2.1.1.

Best regards,

Emilie

Re: Howto embed images in QVF with Qlik Sense Server

Thanks for the clarification Emilie.

However we need to stay on the service track of Qlik Sense 2 due to some bug fixes that are crucial to us. That is upgrading the Qlik Sense 2.1.1 is not an option. Seems as if we will have to wait for Qlik Sense 3.0 for this feature...

Best regards

Daniel
