2019-03-31: CONTRIB and LIAISE attachment handling and naming has been updated

Note

SANDBOX behaves exactly the same as CONTRIB, so you can create SANDBOX issues to experiment with the new mechanism.

These are the main changes (various bugs have also been fixed). Most of the changes are intended to make attachment handling easier and less error-prone, but there are also some new features. See the Jira Contribution Attachments wiki page for full details, including examples and FAQ. Please email tools@broadband-forum.org if you have any problems or questions.

#ChangeDescription
1Multiple files with same versionIt was already possible to have multiple files with the same version and different extensions (e.g. file-00.docx and file-00.pdf) but this has now been extended to allow multiple files with the same version and different titles (e.g. file-clean-00.docx and file-changes-00.docx)
2Example filenamesThe "Attach Files" screen shows some example filenames (based on the current attachments) that illustrate what the actual filenames will look like. The example filenames are updated whenever the "Title" field is updated (or the "Company" field, if it's visible). To trigger the update, click outside the box
3Company name overrideBBF Technical Committee leaders (i.e. members of the tcleaders group) can override the "company" part of the actual filename; this is intended only for when a leader (as part of their BBF leadership role) uploads files on behalf of another user, WA or PS
4Liaison attachments

You now use the "Attach Files" screen to upload LIAISE attachments. This is simpler than for CONTRIB: the actual filename will be same as the uploaded filename, except that:

  • The appropriate LIAISE-nnn prefix will be added if not already present (it's an error if the filename already has the wrong prefix)
  • For outgoing liaisons, a version number will be added if not already present

Note

Users of the WIFIPERF project will see the new "Attach Files" button but it's only partly functional for WIFIPERF and shouldn't be used (we'll sort this out soon).

Note

The company name is no longer included in "Draft" filenames, e.g. (assuming that the title field is empty ) if I upload WT-123_Rev-02.docx then the actual attachment filename will be the same, whereas previously it would have been WT-123_bbf_Rev-02.docx.

To attach files, first create the issue, then click the "Attach Files" button and follow the instructions. See the Jira Contribution Attachments wiki page for full details, including examples and FAQ. Please email tools@broadband-forum.org if you have any problems or questions or problems.
