Configure Form Version Attachment Rules

   Journey Manager (JM) Previously known as Transact Manager (TM).  |    Platform Developer |   17.10 This feature was updated in 17.10.

Manager allows you to create and configure attachment rules for form versions, making it possible to restrict individual attachments to certain file sizes and types. For example, you might only allow JPEG images under 512 kilobytes. You can also place restrictions on all attachments that can be added to the form. For example, you might want to limit the total number of attachments to be 5 and the total size of all file attachments to be 30 megabytes.

To configure attachment rules for a form version:

  1. Select Forms > Forms.
  2. Locate a form and click Edit.
  3. Click Attachments under the Form Versions section.
  4. Select the maximum cumulative file size of all file attachments, which a user is able to associate with their form submission, from the Maximum Total Size dropdown list.
    Note

    The Maximum Total Size can't exceed the Attachments Max Total Size value defined in the Deployment Properties.

  5. Select a total maximum number of file attachments, which a user is able to associate with their form submission, from the Maximum Number dropdown list.

  19. Select a maximum cumulative total size of all file attachments that a user is able to associate with their form submission from the Maximum Total Size dropdown list. The minimum is 0.5 MB and the maximum is 50 MB.
