Best way to reference an image library in an app

Hi,

We have a requirement to display a unique image for each record ID within an app. The volumes of records are in the millions so the images could never be stored in qmem. What are some of the best mechanism's or 3rd party plugins available to reference an external image library and display the image within an app? We could obviously add a URL link in to open the image in a new browser window but it would be neater if we could get it within the app itself. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Mark.

Opps My Bad.

In case of Qlikview, it is much easier.

You can just create a text box and give the URL of the image and select the representation as image.

Ans this URL you can even change as per the parameter.

Hi,

You can use the extensions from the branch.qlik.com which will allow you to use the external link for the images and display it.

There are couple of ways to get the images without the Qmem.

1. Upload the images in Qlik Sense content library, once you do that there will be a link generated for each images. You can use this link in extension.

2. You can host your images on other machine IIS and then use that link in extension.

Hi, thanks for your response Kaushik. I should have clarified that we are currently using Qlikview not Qlik Sense.
