Adding an asset

Assets are static resources that you use in an app. These could be images, presentations, spreadsheets, text files, or code snippets.

Boomi Flow supports the following file types as assets:

  1. JPG
  2. JPEG
  3. PNG
  4. GIF
  5. HTML
  6. HTM
  7. TXT
  8. DOCX
  9. DOC
  10. PPT
  11. PPTX
  12. XLS
  13. XLSX
  14. ZIP
  15. PDF
  16. CSS
  17. XML
  18. JS

Assets can be up to 100 MB. If you have an asset that is larger in size, consider using a file storage system.

We use the following URL form to store/retrieve assets —{Tenant ID}/{Asset name}

Uploading assets
  1. Click LOG IN to login to the Boomi Flow Drawing Tool.
  2. Click Assets and click Upload. You can upload a single file, or multiple files.

By default, all assets get stored in one folder, which is shown as a single directory. If you want, you can create new folders and subfolders in the Drawing Tool to store assets.

Storing assets in new folders:

  1. Click LOG IN to login to the Boomi Flow Drawing Tool.
  2. Click Assets, click Upload, and select Folder.
  3. In the Create new folder dialog box, enter the name of your folder, and click Create.
  4. Select the new folder, click Upload, and upload the asset. (See instructions above)

Using assets in a flow
  1. Click Insert in the content editor.

  2. Select the media or image you want to insert. 
  3. Click the folder icon next to Source.

    This opens the Flow Assets dialog box:
  4. Select the asset you want to insert. This opens the Insert/edit image box. Click Ok. If you want you can also select the proportions you want your asset to be shown in, or add an image description.

    This inserts the asset in the content editor of your Step element:
