Attach a file in an email trigger

Does anyone know if its possible to take a file from an attachment field and attach it in an email through a trigger?

Re: Attach a file in an email trigger

Hi David,

in the JS triggerscript I'd try to fetch the ScriptAttachmentBean via the ScriptIssueBean (or ScriptIssueDeltaBean depending on your trigger context).

The ScriptAttachmentBean offers a getContent() method, that seems to represent the actual attachment file.

The rest depends on your email setup.

Hi David,

Did Matthias suggestion help?

This feature is not something built into the core product, and would definitely require the use of Trigger API calls to achieve. I do know that some customers have implemented this behavior.

Services could certainly do this sort of functionality for you.

Re: Attach a file in an email trigger

I'm using the attachment bean to get the content but am not sure how to get that into the email.

Are you using the sendEmail class?

Re: Attach a file in an email trigger

I'm using the stanard function MKS uses in their triggers Packages.javax.mail. My first problem was I was using getAttachmentBeans instead of getAddedAttachmentBeans. So I'm able to get the attachment, save it to disk through FileOutputStream and then send it.

So it'd be nice to save to disk part but I don't know if that's possible.
