After searching on the SFSE website, it seems this question hasn't been asked.

Can we migrate rich text field data between environments?

Most records contain images embedded in rich text fields which show up as

<img src="Long image URL which is not publicly accessible" />

within the exported CSV.


It has very straight answer, No. Becasue images are hosted in separate authenticated server instance so, you cannot access those images in different environment so, it doesn't work.

There is a work around. If you can encode image in base64 then you will be able to access those images as they are independent of server now.
