Thanks for your help! sorry my mistake ! The Jasper report works as expected actually.
I was looking at something else all that time. I thought that this feature actually works with the HTML Report function, not the Jasper report!
I was thinking it affects the output of the HTML report which can be generated from Tools, Preview HTML Report, or File->Report->HTML.

The key point (and usual error) is that these properties must be set on the model itself, not on a folder nor a view. So the best way to be sure is to right clic on the model name and select "Properties" from the contextual menu. The "Properties" view should now be the one from the model itself and you can set the report properties.

Just tested this and it's working. I added these properties to the model:

Report:Model:Cover:Background     D:\pictures\back.jpg
Report:Model:Header:Background    D:\pictures\back2.jpg

Then exported to Jasper Report.

I tend to agree with the op . I guess we need to differentiate between an icon to a shape, and an image that can be placed anywhere on the shape. I feel this will be a great addition.
An icon to the shape should ideally behave the same way as any other icon, it should resize automatically to the same size as any other Archi icon, and have the text render / wrap next to it. The icon can be on the right or left. that will be awesome.
An image should be treated as anything you want and behaves the same way as it is now in Archi.
So in summary I think we need a different feature just for customising the Icons which should have it's own library too :)

Hi team,
I created a new ArchiMate model from a Template, and choose the Customizable Report (with Tag support) template.
Now I am trying to use Report:Model:Cover:Background, and Report:Model:Header:Background.
I created the required images (in png, and tried with jpg too) with the dimensions as suggested in ReadMe. The property is pointed to the correct location of those images.

The report get generated but the images dont get loaded. What am I doing wrong ? can someone please give me an example model or let me know what I need to do ?

Hi Stéphane,

Thank you for sharing. I've seen that you also published a "training series": I have to watch it, and when done, I'd like to get in touch with you to discuss your work and potential contribution to the ArchiMate 101.


Hi Stéphane, merci/thanks for sharing.

J'essaye de faire la promotion d'Archimate en francophonie, et je viens de sortir une modeste vidéo pour démarrer avec Archi sur ma chaine YouTube.

C'est pour démarrer, et bien sûr cela ne sera pas utile aux utilisateurs de ce forum, mais n'hésitez pas à me faire part de vos retours.

À bientôt,
(j'ai écrit en français, car la vidéo est en français)

Hello Martine,

Yes I succeed to manage this issue.

I have generated new Azure Devops HTTPS credentials.
I have deleted the credentials file in .git folder.

And finally I have filled the authentification informations in Archi with my new credentials.
