Operation attachment issues with REST


(Greg Heeley) #1

We have a job with multiple attachments linked to Op10 and we are trying to retrieve these suing the REST API

Looking at the XFileAttch table gives

This clearly shows 3 attachments to Assy 0, Op 10 of job GLH99999

First running https://ourserver/api/v1/Erp.BO.JobEntrySvc/JobOperAttches returns

Response Body
_ “odata.metadata”: “https://ourserver/api/v1/Erp.BO.JobEntrySvc/$metadata#Epicor.RestApi.JobOperAttches”,_
_ “value”: []_

I would expect this to return all rows attached to Job Operations but nothing comes back.
Should I expect a return?

My Backup option is to build a BAQ looking at XFileAttch and query that.

As an FYI
I also tried GET /JobOperAttches({Company},{JobNum},{AssemblySeq},{OprSeq},{DrawingSeq}) method.
No matter what gets passed in as the DrawingSeq parameter, the method only returns the last item attached.
I ran
and got back

Response Body
“odata.metadata”: “https://ourserver/api/v1/Erp.BO.JobEntrySvc/$metadata#Epicor.RestApi.JobOperAttches/@Element”,
“Company”: “SISTNZ”,
“JobNum”: “GLH99999”,
“AssemblySeq”: 0,
“OprSeq”: 10,
“DrawingSeq”: 12290,

“PDMDocID”: “”,
“DocTypeID”: “IMAGE”,
“RowMod”: “”
This being the last attachment added to the op and showing DrawingSeq 12290 which matches the Seq column ref in above image
Is this a bug?

I tested on my test system and i was unable to obtain them using the

I also was unable to obtain job attachement that was in XFileAttch table. I can confirm all the issues that you were having. My understanding is that the odata methods just call the get rows method for you, So i just tested the JobEntry get rows and the datasets for JobOperAttches are all empty so it makes sense that the odata method is returning no results.

Is it possible to use this method instead?
