Oracle Enterprise Asset Management - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

When implementing EAM and having a requirement to attach a single document in numerous Work orders (e.g., over a thousand Work Orders use the same document reference). The requirement is to add the same attachment to thousands of work orders in EAM and make changes to the document as required and have all the changes reflected accordingly.

1. Can user attach the same document, multiple times (forever)?
2. If the document reference is used, it creates a row in fnd_attach_documents. Does the document physically store multiple times and increases the database size?
3. Does Oracle support any shared link or URL so that you keep the document in a shared location (like sharepoint or citirx server) where you can change the document in a single location and access it via multiple WO's?
