Environment

Filr 4.2

Situation

A Filr administrator wants to add an image to the email notifications sent by Filr when a file is shared. However, after following the Micro Focus Filr documentation to add a public image, the image does not appear in the email message.

Resolution

On each web appliance:

1. Create a new folder called "images" under /opt/novell/filr/apache-tomcat/webapps.

2. Copy the graphics you wish to expose to the new "images" folder. In this example, the graphic is named "Filr-Signatur.png".

3. Edit the email template to include https://<server>/images/Filr-Signatur.png as the link to the graphic.

As an example, edit the footer.vm as follows:

## To embed an image, add the image file to a folder and generate
## a file link for it.  You can then use the download link for the
## image as the src="..." attribute of an HTML <img> tag.
##
## Localization can be achieved using the locale from the visitor
## object.  Example:
##
## #if ($ssVisitor.NotifyDef.Locale.Language == "en")
## ...English text goes here...
## #elseif ($ssVisitor.NotifyDef.Locale.Language == "fr")
## ...French text goes here...
## #else
## ...catch all for languages not handled goes here...
## #end
