Text visualization - Images: Allow image upload and hosting in Analysis Workspace


Level 9


Description - pretty much every other dashboarding solution allows uploading images in a dashboard whereas in Analysis Workspace, you must provide an image URL which is a major issue for many of my clients.


Why is this feature important to you - it is a standard feature in pretty much all other dashboarding solutions, even the free ones like Looker Studio.


How would you like the feature to work - have a drop zone or dedicated image upload button to upload the image on Adobe servers where they stay connected to the current dashboard and get removed once the dashboard is deleted.


Current Behaviour - you must have your own image hosting, worst case use internet service like imgur to get an image URL that can be used


Side note: I would add a screenshot here but the functionality currently seems broken.

I LOVE the fact that this topic keeps resurfacing.  It's because it's still very relevant.
It's a security issue.  I spoke to Ben Gaines about it at #AdobeSummit2023, and he agreed.  Jacob Draper talked about upcoming features in CJA using infographics.  In fact, they even teased some cool stuff at Summit 2024 on stage during the Sneaks portion with Shaquille O'Neal:


Go to 01:05:33 on the timeline of the video, and you'll see what I mean.  They have to eventually make this work beyond external images at some point!

We just have to keep pressing the issue.
