Agentry iOS - Create document and attach it

Dec 15, 2017 at 06:08 PM

I would like to know if I can create a document from Agentry iOS client to be attached as DMS.

I would like to create a plain text or XML file, but the only option seems to select an existing document already stored in the iOS device file system. Could I trigger the creation and edition from Agentry? Do I need Open UI to do that?

Kind Regards,

Marçal Oliveras

When you go to attach the file it has to be an already existing file in the case of a document attach. For photos you can either take a new picture or choose an existing one from your gallery.

In terms of creating the file, I suspect you will need to use an Open UI control to create the file since there isn't the equivalent of a command line interface on iOS. Your Open UI control could be very simple and just take in string property and a file name which it would then create in the iOS Documents directory and write the contents of the string property to. This of course assumes you have pre-populated the string with the file contents. We have done similar a similar process on the Windows client but there we had access to the command line to write out the file.

Hope this helps!

OK, thanks for your answer Bill.

That's what I thought. I may need to push for being allowed to create a branded client and user OpenUI since seems the only possible option if I need to do that... for now I'm limited in this way.

The other alternative, as discussed in a kind of related thread ( would be to store the XML file in an Agentry field of the object I want to link it, and during the posting, process it separately in Java or the backend.
