Community Tip - When posting, your subject should be specific and summarize your question. Here are some additional tips on asking a great question.
I created this idea after reading this article from TS.
In Windchill 10.2 M030, you can add the Attachments column to the Search Results table to identify which items have attachments, but it does not give you direct access to the Attachments without clicking each paper clip icon. It is tedious to get them all, but this does give you a potential work-around to not showing them at all.
I saw your video about what's new in 10.2 M030 document management and we have configured our test system in this way.
Related to this: Can you search on Attachments?
No. They are not unique DB objects like Parts or Documents. There is some information in the HC under Attachments.
Since Windchill cannot currently search on attachments, I added a Product idea to do so. Go vote it up!!
Did you get this resolved? Does Scott's message help you resolve the requirement?
yes Scott's answer is what I was looking for.
Have a nice TC
We have updated CS198431. Can you please mark this idea as Current Functionality?
The icon tells you it exists, not sure if it full satisfies what Marco is asking for.
Marco Tosin can you comment on whether the link Ben show's above, plus that you can search (Index Search) the secondary content that we can close this?
second part of the request was also opened by Marc DeBower in this idea Provide capability to search for attachments (Secondary Content) marked as Current functionality.
I think you can mark this idea same way.
Based upon the availability to Attachment exists icon and the ability to include Secondary content in Index search I am going to close this as Current functionality.
We have slightly different issue here. Our customer wants to see the attachments in the folder browser. We modified the view to include the "Attachments" attribute.
After which we are able to see the attachments icon in the folder view. However, this icon is displayed for documents having NO Attachments as well.
Has anyone faced such issue. Is it a product bug or any issue in our server config.
Your help is much appreciated.
