Attach file to WATS (WATS_AttachFile)




  • Danny Thomson

    Are there other ways to attach a file to a UUT report outside of TestStand ? Either the LAbVIEW Toolkit or better still some drop converter solution


    Could I do this by writing my own custom client converter ?

  • Tom Andres Lomsdalen


    This is currently available from the WATS Client API (custom converter) and TestStand.

    When I attach a file using this Custom Step Type, what happens to the file.

    Where can I see or download this file within UUT Reporting ?

  • Tom Andres Lomsdalen


    The file will be available in the UUT report as a step with a download link. You can also download a batch of attached files using the export wizard.

    I was able to download the attached file through the export wizard.

    But I don't see the download link on UUT report :

    Try to switch to the "printable version" by clicking on the link in the header.
    One question: is this your default layout or have you actively changed the UUT report layout in My Settings?

  • Jean-Louis Schricke

    When switching to "printable version" the download link appears.

    Is it a wanted behavior ?


  • Jean-Louis Schricke

    We don't remember changing this UUT report option.

    I put it back to "Standard version" and now the display is correct.

  • Tom Andres Lomsdalen

    ok, good. Next WATS version will have a brand new report layout so this will not be an issue after next upgrade.
