Add ability for OpenPages/Cognos administrators to add custom images to server

We need to include a custom diagram image for each assessment, which will then be displayed in the Cognos PDF report for that assessment. Currently, the PDF report is unable to use the image if uploaded/attached to an object within OpenPages (only renders in HTML reports). The solution that was given was to add the image file directly to an image folder within the server's file system. Unfortunately, because we are using a managed SaaS deployment of OpenPages/Cognos, we are unable to do this without creating a support ticket with CloudOps.

We would like the ability to add our own custom images to the image folder on the server without the need to create a support ticket.

    I have reviewed the following Cognos self-service capability with our CloudOps Team:

    The above method of uploading custom images should provide you with what you need. If you have any further questions, please create a Support Ticket with our CloudOps Team and they can further discuss this method with you.
