Issue with Attachments



I have an app with a 'thread' entity. I need to be able to add attachments to each thread both from within the app and from flow (via an incoming email)

I'm using the attachments control in the app and this works well and I've also managed to upload via flow (by uploading to the notes entity and associating it with the correct thread record)


The issue is when it comes to uploading the same file multiple times. (There will be many times where the same file needs to be uploaded again or to a multiple threads). When using the attachments control in the app this works fine, it lets you add the same file multiple times. When using a flow to upload the file, the upload succeeds and shows in the app but when you try and download the file it gives an error of 'Couldn't download the file'. This happens when uploading the file to the same thread or even to a different thread record.


I've had a look at the 'note' entity in CDS, the files I uploaded via flow are exactly the same as those uploaded by the app so don't understand whats happening here.


Thanks in advance

Re: Issue with Attachments

This suddenly started working properly... very strange.

If anyone has any insights, would be much appreciated.


Re: Issue with Attachments



This is definitely very odd. Looking through your description, I am not exactly certain what occurred here. I cant think of any reasons as to why it was occurring in the first place. I'll keep an eye out of any indication for what caused this but, honestly I am not sure what could have even caused this. If any other communities members had this happen to them before, feel free to chime in.
