For a tool that I'm writing I need to detect changes in the items. Among there are the attachment fields. I noticed, that the webUI displays the images using an "attachmentID" (mksserver/im/viewattachment/a%20cat.jpg;jsessionid=...?attachmentID=12345). I presume this ID is unique. Is there any way to obtain it?
I would be happy with a solution where I can detect that the attachment is changed for a given item without the need to actually download/compare/hash it. The catch is that I can store very limited amount of information (it gets inserted into a source file for a test suite). The attachment ID would be perfect for this because (I assume) its unique.
I'm using the soap webservice and the cli (im), the solution has to work on both (eg if this attachmentID can be obtained on cli but not on the webservice interface that's a no go).
