2567689 - Unable to Open Attached Documents from Employees Created Via Migration of Employee Data


You uploaded an attachment for an Employee via Migration Tool but you are unable to open the Document as a file.


  • SAP Business ByDesign.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Personnel Management work center.
  2. Access the Employees View.
  3. Search for the required Employee.
  4. Edit the Employee.
  5. Go to the tab of Attachments.
  6. Then you will see the attachments only as a link.


While uploading attachments via Migration of Employee Data the system migrates only the link, not the file itself.


This is a standard behavior.

If you need to search the documents, you have to upload them manually to the system after the migration of the person took place.
