Single Photo Upload Screens, click on Store and Assign

Enter the Business Object and Document Type and Click on Create


Enter the Personnel Number for which the Photo needs to be Attached and Click Enter. Choose the Photo of the Employee from Desktop and Save it.

The above Steps needs to be followed for Uploading Employee Photo in SAP Content Server.

    Good day

    Is it possible to mass upload images for another transaction?

    We need to upload 5000 images into the Long Text of Operations of General Task Lists (IA05).

    Currently using CA10 which is a quicker way to get to the Include Image screen.

    Each image has a unique number and the Long text has already been populated with the image name link etc.


    Any assistance would be appreciated?

    Thank you in advance
