I am new to IFS Report Designer. I read the documentation for the images for Order Reports and it is relatively confusing for me.
For instance I am trying to add a NON logo image to the Order Report LASER_PRINT_CHECK_REP. I do not know where to upload images in IFS for my image to print at runtime. The current image path for the logo is /tns:LASER_PRINT_CHECK_REP_REQUEST/tns:LASER_PRINT_CHECK_REP_ARCHIVE_VARIABLES/tns:VARIABLE[tns:NAME='rhSysLogo']/tns:VALUE
But I have no idea where or how to find where that image is stored.
Is the only way to add images for reports through the Aurena client or is there another way? Can you add via a normal file path like “E:\\folder/folder/image.gif”?
I’m not sure why I find this so confusing but adding an image seems to be very confusing from the documentation for me.
Thanks for all the help,

Have a look at the following link.
Basically, you can import the image through the Aurena Client page Report Images ->Images section.
If you don’t have the Aurena Client, then you have two options.
- Include the images in to your <IFS_HOME>\repository\server\reports\images\<MODULE>\<REPORT_ID> folder and then do a reconfiguration of the application server and tick the import layouts checkbox to import the images in to the database. This will add your new images to the database and they will be fetched from there. Add the same to the <BUILD_HOME> as well.
- Alternatively, if you can’t run the installer, then copy the <MODULE>\<REPORT_ID\images* structure to the disk location that is pointed by the “Fallback image path...” system parameter. Here you need to copy the structure inside the “report_designer_graphics” folder inside the “Fallback path”. This will make the images taken from disk as fallback rather than taking it from database.
