I would be really interested how to use images in Dashboards without the need to save them in "webcontent/bi/samples/images"
Is there an article on the media extension that give instructions on install and use?
Since we are on IBM Cloud, we are using it as easy approach without need to copy on multiple servers. IBM Cloud architecture doesn't allow search when images are uploaded on servers so need to remember exact path for usage.For On premise set up, probably you can have shared mount between servers similar to Deployment Folder.
Other method could be to have common folder (where all users can copy/manage images) and make it mounted on all Cognos Servers. You can write a shell script to copy over to each server path.
Thank you to everyone who responded to my request for help. I reviewed the extension idea and it didn't address the question I had. I appreciate the information though. I think I figured out what would work best for us. We'll use a shared folder for holding images (only authorized BI users can write to it). Using a script we'll copy the images to the 2 content store servers default image folder. This way both CM systems will be in sync and users will have the images to use in their dashboards and reports.
Appreciate all the information shared with me – thanks.
