Marketing attachment input file definitions

Use a Attachment.csv input file to load information to create attachments for the marketing objects that belong to a store. After you load the data, business users can manage the new attachment information for the marketing objects with the Assets tool.

Note: You must apply the interim fixes for APAR JR53438.fep and APAR JR53438.fp to add support to the Data Extract utility and Data Load utility for extracting and loading marketing data.
You can extract the attachment information for marketing objects with the Data Extract utility to create a Attachment.csv input file that you then can load with the Data Load utility. For example, if you want to copy or move marketing attachments between stores or instances, such as for creating one or more test environments. Sample configuration files are provided for you to use with the Data Extract utility to extract the attachment data from the following database tables:

Note: The Data Extract utility and Data Load utility do not extract or load any actual managed files that are associated with the attachments. The utilities only extract and load the information that points to the managed files. You must manually create the managed files in the target store by using the Assets tool. If you do not create the managed files before you load the attachment information, the load operation fails since the Data Load utility cannot resolve the unique ID values for the managed files.
