Hi Micko,


You can configure that in the Data Manager: Configuration -> Provisioning

Re: Thumbnails in Erdas Apollo Catalog

Hello Micko,
the thumbnail of any data set in the Apollo Catalog is an attachment named thumbnail.
You can use the REST API to add your own thumbnail into the catalog, please take a look at this funktion:
To add a thumbnail your request URI might look like this:
with the following JSON content:
  "name": "thumbnail",
  "path": "file:///C:/testdaten_queryables/test.TIF",
  "mimeType": "image/tif"
Now in the DataManager and in Apollo Portal your thumbnail is displayed in the thumbnail panel.
Best regards
