Yet Another Attachment Question - fattach_full_path
So I'm working on something that requires me to gain access to the attachment content of a custom object during an AJAX request, so I've been adapting code from the standard Fattach model to get the data that I need. So far it's been going ok. It feels like 2 steps forward 1 step back continuously, but that's developing on CX for you.
My current problem is that I am not allowed to use fattach_full_path. Why, I don't know. It doesn't make sense in any kind of CRM or CMS system to not give the developer full access to the data. By all means turn it off by default to prevent amateur developers from doing something stupid, but I wish the developers of CX would give us some credit and just allow us a way to access attachments through the api.
