can't download sharepoint attachments from app

i have an app with an "attachments" control linked to a sharepoint list. as far as i know, downloading attachments from it was working fine until this morning. 


now, when i click an attachment in the published app, it brings me to this page:




when i do the same in the editor, i get this:




what's the deal? i've gotten the "failed - no file" error before, and as far as i remember it resolved itself pretty quickly and only happened in the editor. this time it's persistent.

i can download the attachments normally directly from the sharepoint list, so i don't think sharepoint or the files themselves are the problem.

I am also facing same issue, as mention by cyarbrough.


I have a form control and it's saving the attachment in the list. I used a galley control seperately(outside the form), where i shown all the list item along with the attachment control in the gallery. The attachment are showing in the list, but when i try to click the attachment control, it it's giving me same error as mention by cyarbrough.


Previously, it's working fine. The attachment was downloaded and shown perfactly. But, i found this issue from on last day morning. 


[Note : for gallery attachment i used this command in Items properties : ThisItem.'{Attachments}' ]



It's very urgent.

issue is still happening today

this is still an issue

It appears that this problem is due to a mismatch in the editable name map of the "Items" property of Attachments control.  To fix it, please adjust the property mapping, as seen in this picture:

Hi @jovan 

There is no such "Value" property seen for the attachments control in the editor. I can only see items property. 

And this problem still persists. Do we have any other way around? 


Plz help!
