Attachments: Bytes, Blobs, ?


How are attachments saved in the datastore? We created some functionality where we will have users submit content with attachments. Are we saving attachments as blobs, bytes, something else? What data do I need to save attachments when I have a custom content type containing media files?

Hi Ed

To save the attachment data to a blob, you will need some kind of content type that derives from MediaData. Then you can create a blob from your binary data and assign that blob to an instance of your content type.

Basically you will write data to a Stream and Episerver will store it in either blobs or files, depending on the hosting platform (e.g. a cloud site or a regular server).

Samples are provided on this documentation page.
