The _FILES element is used to retrieve files that are attached to objects in the Enovia repository. The filenames and formats of the files are inserted as fields in the document metadata. All of the files associated with a document are packaged into a single ZIP file for processing.

Attribute Description
node_name The name of the metadata field to contain the file metadata. If node_name is not specified the file metadata is added at the current depth in the document metadata. This attribute only adds structure to the metadata and does not affect the metadata itself.


The following XML might be used in the DocumentsXML file:

<_OBJ ...>
   <_FILES node_name="files"/>


The XML would result in the following output in the indexed document:

   <file format="generic">my_file.doc</file>
