5. If the same step is followed through a desktop UI, the attachment opens correctly without any error.

Cause

It works in on the UI as it only checks the UI permission whether a user is able to access Time Off or not.

In Mobile time off, it uses a different API to request attachment from MDF therefore Read and Write permission to MDF needs to be enabled.

Resolution

Enable 'Read/Write permission on Metadata Framework' for the employee in order for him to view the attachment in mobile app.
