Is there is a reference to an attachment in the outbound xml generated by ServiceLink? We have a Service:Link agent that will be logging a ticket into an external system and we want to notify the recipient of the item in the external system that there could be an attachment on the requisition that they'll need to review.
I check the XML and did not see any references to the attachments.
We basically would include the link to the Task every time we sent an outbound ticket because we also couldn't differentiate. However, we've moved to a custom attachment solution (so attachments are added at the order form level) which now lets us check if one exists and include the link in the remote system accordingly.
The custom attachment solution is likely to be the solution that we are working towards too. Thanks for the information. It's good to hear feedback on how other companies tackle these sorts of problems.
Tim, no worries. Disappointing that a custom solution seems to be the way we need to go, but alas. If you have any questions about the custom solution please let me know - we were one of the first adopters I think and picked up a few things here and there:
