We would like the capability of creating document CI types or to attach documents as an attribute of a CI.
Some examples of how we would use it would be:
Create an "Architecture" CI Type and attach a Vizio drawing, or have an architecture attribute for a business application CI which would allow you to upload a Vizio VSD, PDF, or JPG. Clicking on the filename should then either view or download the uploaded file.
Create an "Workflow" CI Type and attach a VSD, PDF, or JPG drawing of the business process workflow, or have an attribute for a business process CI which would allow you to upload a VSD, PDF, or JPG drawing.
Create a "Business Continuity" CI Type and attach a docx or PDF business continuity plan, or have an attribute for a business process or Business Service CI which would allow you to upload a copy of the continuity plan.
There are many uses for the ability to attach and relate documents to CI's... seems logical to implement the functionality. Currently there exists an configuration_document CI Type and an attachment_content attribute of CIT Attachment but they only allow for 'byte' type. CMDB needs a way to upload content and display/consume/download content.
