Description

The following script is useful in case you need to get full (physical) path of an attachment on server (with file-storage using) - means at which folder & subfolder this file is physically store. In this example, snippet shows how to get path for attachment TestingData.xls attached to a current page. Of course, you can expand this snippet to get full path of attachment from other page or for list of attachments.

{{groovy}}
import com.xpn.xwiki.*;
import com.xpn.xwiki.api.*;
import com.xpn.xwiki.doc.*;
import org.apache.commons.io.FileUtils;
import java.io.File;
import java.net.URL;
rzlt = doc.getAttachment("TestingData.xls").getAttachment().getAttachment_content().storageFile.getAbsolutePath()
println (" rezult is = " + rzlt)
{{/groovy}}
Keep in mind that what this snippet is accessing a private field (storageFile) which might be renamed or modified any time so better not use that in an extension to hope to be stable.

Prerequisites & Installation Instructions

Copy the code snippet to a page and save it.
