Izenda Logo

About

Data Type: string
Accepted Values: URL locations
Default value: string.Empty
Impacted Features: Report Designer Chart Tab
Purpose: Gets or sets the base URL of the site in image references for Visualizations on the Chart tab of the Report Designer
Usage: This setting is used to ensure that the image files are located by the application for Visualizations on the Chart tab of the Report Designer. A typical use case is a multi-tenant application, where the Izenda URL changes based on tenant (i.e. tenant alpha sees URL "http://www.mysite.com/alpha/ReportList" and tenant beta sees "http://www.mysite.com/beta/ReportList")
Caveats: This setting should not be used in the typical integration. Only use when Visualization images do not appear in the Chart tab of the Report Designer (see screenshots below)
