Reproducing the Issue



Difference of Multiattachmentselection and Multiattachment



If the field in the application template has the behavior for which:

  • You can add any number of attachments only once
  • You cannot add or modify the attachments later

This means that is probably configured as type=”multiattachmentselection”.

This is the normal and as designed behavior: once there are one or more attachments already added, it is not possible to edit these any more. This is regardless of any permission defined on that field.



  • In order to have a different and more versatile ior the type=”multiattachment” should be used.
  • To setup this solution, please reach out to Partners or Professional Services as Cloud Product Support is not allowed to change field types as this can cause Data Loss
