Object image

Some objects may have images imported from the source tool. The typical use case is the import of a thumbnail preview image of the actual reports in a Business Intelligence (BI) tool. These report images are often in very low resolution to avoid revealing any details or data. This is the case of a Tableau worksheet where preview images generated by the tool and imported along with the model are visible as an object image on the top right of the Overview tab of the object page, for example:

The object image will appear on the object page of the report and also in any worksheet as long as you add the Object Image column.

When importing the model, be sure to specify the -previewImage option in the Miscellaneous bridge parameter. Note that this option is available only on some import bridges.
