Obtaining the link to download the attachment

Filed under: Dynamics CRM — haditeo @ 11:47 am

When i observed how does the CRM save the attachment such as Microsoft Word document or Microsoft Excel document, actually CRM is saving them as a series of text.

After trying to manually save that series of text with the correct file extension, it’s still cannot be read.

After googling around, i found this useful article : http://mscrm4ever.blogspot.com/2009/02/displaying-image-in-iframe.html

To obtain the correct link to the attachment inside the notes, i can use this link :
http://localhost/MSCRMOrganizationName/Activities/Attachment/download.aspx?AttachmentType=5&AttachmentId=F0B5C1DC-3414-DE11-9396-0003FF4F593C

Subsitute the MSCRMOrganizationName with your correct MS CRM Organization Name. AttachmentType = 5 means that we are trying to retrieve an attachment from inside the Notes entity. Annotation object type code is 5. The AttachmentId here is referring to the annotationid of the particular attachment

To obtain the correct link to download the attachment of the email, i can use the following link : http://localhost/MSCRMOrganizationName/Activities/Attachment/download.aspx?AttachmentType=1001&AttachmentId=E0A91814-2614-DE11-9396-0003FF4F593C

AttachmentType=1001 is referring to the Email object type code. AttachmentId here is referring to the activitymimeattachmentid
