A Bonded Attachment is created for every synchronised attachment, storing relevant data.
For every attachment that is sent or received, a Bonded Attachment record is created that links to the attachment. This allows the system to automatically make size calculations and track if the attachment has been sent.
The attachment sits on the bond, but is also linked to and can be viewed from the transaction that sent it.
For implementations using multiple integrations with one record, one attachment can be added and it will automatically be sent and tracked across all the relevant bonds.
Unifi has automated checks that prevent attachments and updates being sent back to the originator (controlled by the Connection).
The following table gives a description of the fields that are visible on the Bonded Attachment record:
The state is set in conjunction with the information contained on the Integration & Bond (concerning permitted file types & attachment sizes etc.) and is used to determine whether or not to send the attachment, or where it sits in the process. The Bonded Attachment lifecycle can be seen in the following table which describes the
