How to attach a file before case creation?

Hi, I am new to Pega. I tried to search my question but could not get anything from PDN.

May I know is there a possibility to attach a file on the first screen/clipboard, before Case creation? Then when user click on Create, it will tied the attachment to the case.

Thank you.

You need to add the section pyCaseAttachmentsTopWraaper on the first screen.

Please let me know if this helps.

Hi Rachit,

Thanks for replying. I have tried it but it is not working.

Looks like it is still looking for a pzInsKey in Work- SaveAttachment

Yes, I observed the same behavior. So, I did a private- edit and commented the 1st step and again ran the scenario. Could now attach the file.

Can you try and implement a similar activity which could attach a file in pyAttachments under pyWorkPage. Please let me know in case of any queries

Rachit, As the case is not created yet, how can the link be established between attachment instance in table and the case in work table?

Actually, what I tried to do is link the attachment in front end only, and later once the case is created we could link the same attachment to work object/DB. But it seems like currently, we cannot do that.

It could be bit cumbersome. Please check my answer in this post.
