attach file in folder in scenario

While creating a scenario there is an option of adding Reporter to it 

i tried creating a reporter as mail and added all the details over their, now we selected add attachments 

I want to attach a file within the folder in our mail reporter i am able to see the folder but not able to see any contents within it  

is there anything wrong we did?

Hi Srkanoje,

In order to effectively add a file from a Managed Folder to your Reporter, you need to explicitly write its path in the Reporter's settings. The following examples work if you want to attach:

- a file from your Managed Folder's root path (some_file.pdf)

- a file from a scenario directory in your Managed Folder (scenario/some_other_file.xls)

Note that you need to type the full file name/path yourself. Hope this helps !

Hi Srkanoje,

- When specifying the "Item", the relative path you enter starts from the root path of the Managed Folder, meaning that in your case you should not add trs/... at the beginning of the field

- If you want to attach all files of a Managed Folder's "subdirectory" you need to manually specify all of them. For example, if your processed_bkp contains 3 files a.txt, b.txt and c.txt, the Reporter settings would look like this:

@HarizoR do we have any flexibility with the tool to increase the file size limit it says only be able to process data till 20mb but my files are of larger size 

it gave me the error

"Processing attachment of type FOLDER failed : File produced for the attachment is too large (65743750 > 20971520)"

Hi,

Unfortunately the size of the attachment is implemented as a hard limit and cannot be changed.

Best,
