How to import attachments to SM using import descriptor.

Hi Experts,

My requirement is to import values along with attachments to SM.

Previously attachment was there so I have used txt file to import data to SM.

So how to modify this import descriptor so that it also include attachments.

Is it possible to import attachments to SM?


Any suggestion is appreciated.

Thanks & Regards,

Thanks for contacting us on this.

I was reviewing the official documentation for Import Descriptor https://docs.microfocus.com/SM/9.60/Hybrid/Content/database/tasks/add_an_import_descriptor_record.htm

i wasn't able to find anything related on attachments, please let me know if you have review any other documents or guide, could you share it with us.

I do not think you could upload attachments using import descriptor.
Can you brief the requirement.?
Attachments go into sysattachments table, so you won't be able to use import descriptor which is set on another table.
