Attachments Debug View

Attachments are files of any type that are wrapped and accessible from an AutoMate task. These files can be easily exported or deployed along with their associated task allowing them to be more transportable and manageable. At runtime, attachments are automatically "unwrapped" to a local folder directory, where they can be accessed by the task. The Attachments debug pane (shown below) displays any files that are attached to the current task. You can add, remove or modify an attachment with this tool as well. More on Attachments
