A best practice is to take the UAT system off-line when UAT is undergoing maintenance or configuration in preparation for End User Acceptance testing. This is to prevent any unauthorized access by end users that might want to start testing the system before it’s ready, which is never a good idea. After all, you don’t call the building inspector until you’re up to code, right? Leaving UAT available during configuration can be disastrous. Don’t make this rookie ISM mistake, you will thank me later!
Binary Max field for pictures
If you want to add an image to a business object then you can use the Binary/Max field type which is a good way of displaying a screenshot or picture that you can open with a single click, opposed to attachments that you need to save locally first.
HTML text fields with Base 64 Code
Another way is to use an HTML field, first select Text as the field type you want to add and then change it to HTML. Now you can paste images which which will be converted to Base 64. To view the base 64 code click source edit to copy it and voila!
Now you can copy and paste the base 64 code OR entire HTML code to Global Constants such as a “generic” Email Footer for example for ALL outgoing email notifications.
Tip: If you do not have any HTML fields, then you can create an Email with Ivanti Service Manager and use the email body (it’s HTML)
and then click source edit to reveal the base 64 code
and then copy the code into the Global Constant.
Calling Global Constants
In your email notification body, or anywhere else in ISM you can call the Global with the function GetGlobal()
