The field fileName from the attachment field is a required item when upserting attachments through Integration Center.


When uploading files through Integration Center to an attachment field, there are a few fields required when upserting on this field: fileName, fileContent, attachment module. If any of these fields are empty, then the integration center job will fail and none of the updates will occur.
