Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Manage Documents
  2. Observe multiple attachments regarding custom MDF object
  3. Go to Manage Data
  4. Search for custom MDF object and relating record
  5. Attachment not visible


As attachments are loaded by ODATA API and not referenced by SuccessFactors UI, attachments must be removed in the same way.
