E-FTP: Viewattachment Fails When Using Same Window. (Doc ID 1645880.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 23, 2019

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.52 to 8.53 [Release 8.4]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


ViewAttachment fails in tools 8.53.03 instance when set to open file in same window, Does work if new window option in ViewAttachment is set to True (default).

Test case:

Upgrading from Peopletools 8.49 to 8.52. We have a custom page that uses a push button to View an Attachment. In release 8.49, this attachment is viewed using the ViewAttachment command. If the window option is false, the attachment can be seen in the large PIA window on the same page, imbedded in the portal window. If the window option is true, the page can be seen in a new window, not imbedded in a portal. I believe this is the correct behavior.

In release 8.52, this same attachment is successfully viewed when the window option is set to true, and appears in a new window not imbedded in the portal. I believe that is the correct behavior. However, when the window option is set to false, the attachment is never viewed in the browser

Tool 8.53.03

Actual behaviour:

ViewAttachment should display file irrespective of set to open in new window OR same window.

Error message:
No error message, just nothing happens and file is not viewed.

Test case:
Tested from Tools test utility page with .txt file and FTP URL as record://psfile_attdet.
