IssueHow to extract all Attachments for a specific Application or Questionnaire.
There may be a need to get Attachments files from particular RSA Archer Modules (Application and/or Questionnaire). 
  1. Create a "destination" directory (when you run the batch file, this is the target directory for the Attachments)
  2. Open the attached SQL query and modify the 3 parameter values in the SQL query:
    1. @SourceDirectory (File Repository)
    2. @DestinationDirectory
    3. @moduleName
  3. Execute the SQL query against the RSA Archer Instance database.
  4. Copy the "copy_cmd" column.
  5. Create a text file using Notepad.
  6. Paste the SQL results from the "copy_cmd" column into the text file.
  7. "Save As" All Files and use a .bat extension.
  8. Run the batch file.
Note: The batch file will copy the attachments from the File Repository to the Destination directory for the RSA Archer Modules you specified in the query.
