IFS File BLOB data

Is there a way that anyone knows of to get BLOB data of file attachments from Agile.  That is, getting the information for a word file or pdf in a single database cell (log or text type).

I’ve seen that “select f.content_url from Files f where id = ‘12345’” gets you to a link that downloads xml data for a file but I’m not sure that’s the same thing.  

Just thinking about different ways to publish files to a MySQL server that along with meta-data about the item can benefit a different application of ours.

I guess if I need to re-frame my question:  is there a way for a connection to pull a file from Agile or get a file via database query (not the meta data, but rather the hard data or blob/clob data).

Hi Matt,

For some strange unknown reason am unable to post the actual answer. Hence am pasting a screenshot of it. Please check & let me know if it helps.

Thanks Swagoto – that’s usual but not exactly for my purposes.

I was wondering if  there’s a way to actually copy the file into a database table cell (blob or text type, specifically).  What you gave me helps me get a link like C:AgileFiles\000?0%9agile77041234.pdf but that’s not the same has having an external (internal to firewall but external to Agile) database actually have a copy of the file.  Is there a way to push the byte data of a file into a database cell?
