Db2 Web Query enhancement - document how to use repository image URL in a report column

Web Query reports could be enhanced by including an image, within a row of data. The WQ portal currently includes the ability to upload images into the repository, but it is unclear HOW to reference the image Path or URL on a report column. Please document how -to or enable function in future.

Use Case:

Use cases would involve the presentation of information for single or multiple report rows, with graph embedded within the row. Graphics could include simple arrows (up, down, flat), Red, Yellow, Green objects, etc. Web Focus demos show such capabilities by row, but function is hampered in Web Query because:
a) can't access images from repository
b) workaround methodology of adding URL to non-WQ location is cumbersome.
c) other approaches like adding graphs to documents require way more effort to achieve visuals.

    Thanks for this document link to review. Can I assume, since the examples around Pg 214, appear to all be in FEX code format, that using InfoAssist to enable images in an approach similar to TrafficLighting, is not possible, at least at this time? In any case, the examples will be helpful and the document appreciated!
