# Include an Asset in Content

The asset can be added to a content type that has an Attach or Image attribute. Refer to the Content Type tutorial for a detailed set of instructions.

# Configure File Extensions for Upload

The file types that can be uploaded to an Entando Application are defined on the server side of the App Builder, e.g. in entando-de-app of a quickstart application.

Two properties in src/main/conf/systemParams.properties specify the supported file types via comma delimitted lists:

  • jacms.imageResource.allowedExtensions=
  • jacms.attachResource.allowedExtensions=

For example, jacms.imageResource.allowedExtensions=jpg,jpeg,png,svg,svg+xml, where svg+xml is the MIME type for an SVG image. The MIME type of an asset is checked by APIs that support resources and should be defined in addition to the asset's file extensions.

The systemParams.properties file is bundled into the WAR, so an image must be created and deployed to reflect changes to these properties.
