Why would you want to clog your database with duplicate content like that?
You could simply given the URL of the parent’s attachment in the child
ticket somewhere (body or a custom field)

Please could you give me any example to get the url of parent ticket attachment?

Thanks,

I have been looking at trying to figure out how to use this to store attachments on the filesystem and replace them with http links into the tickets, but haven’t had much time. It may be an interesting option.

It’s not complicated, but not trivial. See and adapt

Oooh! Thanks for that. Just what this nmh user has been wanting.

Tony,

Did you have any success with this? I’m trying to do something similar.

Thanks!
