Is there a limitation for the attachments that can be added over a custom list against each item in SP2013 online?

If not, am I stuck over a scenario where I need to add more than 2 different files against each list item?

  • these files will always be the same? where are you storing these files? – Taran Goel Sep 9 '15 at 7:50

Check this blog.

I made the same code in three different projects and it worked perfectly.

You will need a jQuery.Multifile library to follow the example.

There probably is no limit:

Sharepoint List Item Attachment Limitation

But adding attachments via javascript might be tricky. I tried that once and had to use powershell instead.

  • Ok , its highly considerable that list items not having any limit for adding attachments to it. But how to add it , and identify those attachments using javascript. – user27178 Sep 9 '15 at 8:34
  • As far as I know, you cannot add attachments via javascript – Nils Sep 9 '15 at 8:35
  • I am calling its OOB feature for uploading the file to list in my js code using SP dialog URl- "siteUrl+"/_layouts/Attachfile.aspx?ListId={" + ListId+ "}&ItemId=" + itemId; It is working for single attachments, and looking forward to perform the same for multiple items.

  • So you open a dialogue? I thought you tried to do this automatically – Nils Sep 9 '15 at 8:39
  • Yes @Nils its opening OOB dialog for uploading the attachments, and it associate it with the list . – user27178 Sep 9 '15 at 8:40
