A resource allows any external file to be stored within XIA Configuration Server - for example an image, Microsoft Word document or Visio diagram.


The subject and title of Microsoft Office XML format documents such as docx and xlsx will be extracted automatically, the same is true of JPEG images.


Resource Storage

The actual resource files (for example a PNG image) are stored within the XIA Configuration Server database in the Resources table (ResourceData field) in binary format. This makes image resources accessible to the reporting system.
