Drag&Drop files to Work Item Form to create Attachments

 This plugin allows you to register a drop-box where files dragged from a file manager could be dropped to create a new attachment.


Attachment Upload extension allows users to drop files directly from the file managers to Work Item Form via Drag&Drop.
  • This feature uses HTML5 File API and is compatible with all modern browsers.
  • The extension is checking if File API is enabled and warns user if support is not provided.
  • Extension is rendering a small drop-box control, where the file drops are expected.
  • When the file is successfully uploaded, you'll see a confirmation message.
  • You may drop several files at once, they will be processed sequentially
    • ...only confirmation of the last file upload will be shown afterwards
  • If there were any errors - you'll see a warning message about it.
  • If there was already a file with this name in attachment, Polarion will create a new attachment with the same label (different name in storage) - only a warning will be shown by the extension
  • When upload is complete, you'd need to refresh Work Item form to see it (no automatic refresh of the screen)
Installation Instructions:
  • Extract attached archive into following folder:
    • <polarion install folder>/polarion/extensions 
    • as result, file paths should look like:  
    • <polarion install folder>\polarion\extensions\com.polarion.attachmentupload\
  • Restart Polarion
  • Include reference to the extension in the Form Layout configuration settings
    • (Administration -> Work Items -> Form Configuration -> Form Layout Configuration)
    • <extension id="attachmentupload" label="Attachment Uploader"/>
    •  where "id" must be "attachmentupload" and "label" will appear as title of the panel
