Oracle BI12c: placing custom images in BI Server and reference using fmap

For Oracle BI 12c custom content such as images or pdf help files needs to be placed in the following directory:

/domains/bi/servers/obips1/tmp/earmanager/analytics/../res/

where /../ is a dynamic folder name such as v-PLM12aFeu7Y.

Within a Report or Dashboard this path may be referenced using the following syntax:

fmap:file_name

or:

fmap:foldername/file_name (if a subfolder “foldername” was created below /res)
