Hello, has anyone been able to point to an image on mapped or E: drive in Perspective?

Thanks!

This will not work. Browser won’t let you fetch file resources if you’re loading an actual URL (for very legitimate security purposes). Use the webdev module to use Ignition’s webserver as a file server, from anywhere the gateway has direct access to.

Thank you for the quick reply. So my only option is store locally on the C: drive in the main path or use the module?

My issue is allowing user’s access to the Ignition C: drive to store pictures. I would prefer to allow them to store them somewhere else (ie. secondary drive or network). So, as a workaround, I will have to set a network folder and write a script to copy to the main folder on the ignition server, but not the cleanest method.
