How to embed an image in Global Constants and business object fields

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.

Global Constants

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)
