Deleting files from attachments

You might want to delete a file from an attachment if you no longer have any use for that file. When you delete a file from an attachment, the file itself is not deleted. Only the association between the file and the attachment is deleted.

Before you begin

To determine if an attachment is associated to any business objects, such as a catalog entry or marketing content, view the attachment details. The properties view of the selected attachment displays the business objects that the attachment is assigned to in the References tab.


  1. Open the Assets tool.
  2. Open the properties view for the attachment.
  3. In the Manage Attachment tab, locate the file that you want to delete in the Files or URLs table.
  4. Right-click the file; then click Delete.
