Problem with embedded images

Sunday, February 5, 2023


After a server move, some of the embedded images are no longer displayed in the test cases. No worry, it's because some of them were added with the full URL which is no longer valid. However, I don't get broken images in the test cases, just nothing.

But if I generate a report (regardless of format), the images will be there, fully visible.

I want to check the "source" of the affected test steps, and manually update the image URLs if needed, but I don't seem to be able to do just that. There's only the rich text editor. We are using version 6.15.0 of Spira, I know that in older versions there was a "View Source" button in the toolbar, but I can't find that one anymore.

Any help is welcome.

Hi Fredrik

I'd use the F12 browser tools to see what the actual URL is. It could be:

  • The URL has the wrong path
  • The URL is just a base64 embedded data URL for the image

If the later, you can right-click and save the Image and then paste back into the test step.

Please log a help desk ticket if you need more specific advice.
