How can i import a Binary Image from MongoDB to Qlik Sense?

Hi All,

i am faceing an issue when i try to load images in Qlik Sense which are saved as BinaryObjects in my mongodb. 

When i import the collection where the images are saved and try to show a img, i get System.Bytes[].

I want to show the pictures dynamic. Ive read many entrys in the forum but i dont get it. Maybe you can help me. 

My Import looks like: 


Load FormType,
INFO SELECT FormType, img

FROM maschine.ShaftFormTypes;

This is my first entry in this forum, be nice to me when i forget something. 

Friendly regards

You can't store images in Qlik Sense. You could in QlikView using a bundle load, but that was deprecated. My advice is to build out a web server that serves these images. Next load the image URLs into the data model. Then use an extension to display them dynamically.

If it doesn't need to be dynamic, you can add them to a content library.
