Attachment administration

Administrators can configure options for how files are uploaded and attached to records.

Note: To learn how to upload attachments to records, see Add an attachment.

Attachment tables

When you store an attachment to any table, a record is created in the Attachment [sys_attachment] table that contains attachment metadata, and the file data is stored in the Attachment Document [sys_attachment_doc] table, in 4k chunks. For example, if you attach a 12k file called My_attachment.pdf, then there is an Attachment entry with three related Attachment Document entries.
