Save-image-data-with-kbattribute of an image definition determines whether the image file is saved as part of your KB. The default for this attribute is
no. Change this attribute to
yesto save the image as part of your KB.
Saving an image file with your KB protects the integrity of the image file for deployment purposes, and ensures that the KB is complete. However, the size of your KB will increase by significantly more than the size of the image file because:
Deploying a KB without saving its images requires that you determine an appropriate directory location for the image files to be stored at a customer site. Since directory specifications are operating-system specific, you can increase KB portability by saving the image with the KB. Also, consider the fact that image files in a directory at a customer site are subject to change and deletion.
Save-image-data-with-kbattribute to save the image with the KB, you can thereafter change the definition's
File-name-of-imageattribute to be
none. G2 knows that the image has been saved in the KB, and therefore does not describe the image definition as incomplete in its
Notesattribute, as it would if no pathname were specified and no image had been saved.
