Attachment Sources have the ability to automatically acquire or receive attachments. Attachment Sources can be created inside Locations only.
There is a maximum limit of 150 files that can be received per Attachment Source per day. This equates to 1 file every 10 minutes. Each file can be up to 100MB in size. Exceeding this limit will trigger an Overload Alarm on the Source.
Configure properties via the Workspaces Tree context menu or List View properties icon. Requires configure permission.
The general section allows you to specify attachment storage options.
Configure how you would like to connect to your attachments.
Select the transport used to acquire attachments.

Ftp your files to ftp.eagle.io using the auto-generated user name exactly as shown. Password is optional. Use Tcp port 21 for standard Ftp and Tcp port 990 for implicit SSL.
Note: Only one concurrent ftp connection is allowed per Source. The maximum accepted size per file is 100MB.
Specify if the email message body should also be processed:
No only the attachments will be processed.

The Security section displays a list of all users and groups that have access to the Node. Users with security permission can restrict user and group access to the node and its descendants by assign the No Access role.
New users and groups must be added via the Workspace Security section.
The Account Owner, Administrators or Workspace users/groups that have been assigned a Workspace role with the configure permission can not be assigned the No Access role.
Enabling public access allows anyone to view the node (attachment, chart, dash or historic data) using the generated URL.
You can also embed charts and dashboards into your own website with basic HTML. Select Copy embed HTML from the URL dropdown menu for a generic code snippet (you will need to paste this in to your website).
Use the available options to customize the URL based on your display preferences. These options are transient and you can use multiple variations of the URL at the same time.
If you disable and re-enable the public access feature a new url will be generated and the old url will no longer work. This feature is NOT available on Starter accounts.
