BI4: CSS Paths on Tomcat Server to provide for Design Studio

I am looking for a solution to restrict authorization for the public folder wihtin the BI Launchpad. But I am facing the problem that users are not able to execute Design Studio reports which includes pictures and css-files wihtin the public folder structure.

Know I found the following SAP note:

2293933 - BI4: CSS Paths within BO Public Folders not working in Design Studio

Can you help me to find out, how to save pictures and css-files on the tomcat server and how to reference within my Design Studio report?

    Hi Christian,

    If you are going to restrict authorization for Public folders in BI launchpad, you can save the CSS file and images in the same folder with the application. Because the user having access to the application in that folder will also have same access on the css files and images. So the applications will work fine at the time of execution.

    Adding to that rather than using image files in design studio application, you can use image data uri.

    Thanks,

      Hi,Poovarasan.

      You are right.Now,we use three method to solve this:

      first,for image,we use setimage(url),we save the image in the service;

      second,for css,we also use url ,but we must set two url in the machine of developer and product;

      last,for GEOJSON,we just can use the normal way.

      I was wondered maybe GEOJSON file have another way we didn't find.

      This is my conclusion,maybe I'm not good in language express.

      Thanks.
