How to customize the behaviour of adding attachment?


Stephen Li (1324) | asked Aug 06 '14, 2:16 a.m.
I have to attach a document to a work item from SSH server instead of local machine. And we can't map the directory in SSH server to local machine. So I want to implement my dialog to navigate the folders in SSH. Is there any extension point for customizing the behaviour? Shall I write a client plugin or server plugin to achieve the goal?

I don't think you can easily do that. However https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Main/ContributingAttributePresentationsV2 describes how to create your own editor presentations.

sadly there is no mechanism to subclass the UI for attachments. 
for enhancement 153049 I modified the product code to support a symbolic link on a named remote volume. But I kept the drive volume search gesture.

my changes do not work for adding an attachment via the web browser, as the new anti virus model hides the real local volume/path name in browsers.
