How to attach a file in the report thanks to the CLA if I use a Python script ?

Paul-Ambroise Burdet (131) | asked Sep 10 '20, 6:06 a.m.

Hi everyone,

I am using the command line adapter of IBM to automate some process.

I put the python.exe (kernel) as the Command of the Adapter
And I put the Python script as the Argument.

Process works properly, but I am now trying to add a file to the Attachments in the Result Details. As I am not using a .bat or shell script, I did not find explanation on how to attach a file.

Has somebody the answer and could help me on how to attach a file thanks to a Python script?

My suggestion would be to write a basic batch file and  play with the feature first. See for how to attach files.

Once you understand the basics, call your python script from the command/batch file.

I experimented with this basic command batch:

echo Test
echo %*

set > c:\Temp\SetEnv.txt

echo SomeDocument=C:/shared/SomeDocument.txt >> %qm_AttachmentsFile%
echo SetEnv=c:/Temp/SetEnv.txt >> %qm_AttachmentsFile%
echo >> %qm_AttachmentsFile%
echo Google= >> %qm_AttachmentsFile%

echo CustomAttributesFile is %qm_CustomAttributesFile% > c:\Temp\Files.txt
echo CustomPropertiesFile is %qm_CustomPropertiesFile% >> c:\Temp\Files.txt
echo ExecutionVariableFile is %qm_ExecutionVariablesFile% >> c:\Temp\Files.txt
echo AttachmentsFile is %qm_AttachmentsFile% >> c:\Temp\Files.txt
echo Files=c:/Temp/Files.txt >> %qm_AttachmentsFile%
