Attaching multiple documents


Level 7
I have a workflow to attach a single document using the list variable. However, I would like to attach multiple documents.

In the current workflow I use the "readResourceContent" module to read the PDF stored in the recources repository.

Do I have to add another module if I would like to read more than one file ?

With the current version, you can only read one documnet at a time.

You can write a custom component that uses the Reposiroty API or use a loop and call the readRessource multiple times.

Thanks for replying.

What variable can hold multiple files ? This would apply if I wanted to send multiple attachments,read from a file system (not repository).



Level 4

A List variable of subtype "Document" should be sufficient for holding multiple files. Remember that List variables are 1-based meaning that the first item in the list will be at index 1 and not 0.

Let me know if you have any issues.

Josh - Thank you for replying.

How would I assign the files to the list variable ? The last time I used a list variable was to attach one file.

Does this mean I will need to have one document variable for each file ? and then assign the variable to list[x] ?
