(For example : pulsar.Account.attachmentDefaultFileName)

ValueValid file name without extension
  • This setting allows setting a default name for attachments
  • Optionally the Key can be specified with an object type, and optionally with a record type, to narrow the scope in which this applies
  • This name will be combined with a session timestamp and an index to make a unique Attachment file name, using the file's original extension
  • For example, "AccountAttachment" would generate "AccountAttachment_123456789012_1.jpg" for an image attached with this setting in place
