Arguments

pth

A local file path to save the attachment to.

fn

The attachment filename, as per ODK form submission. If NA, no file will be downloaded, but NA will be returned. If the file does not exist in ODK Central, a warning will be emitted.

src

The attachment's download URL, generated by attachment_url. The src must contain the uuid: prefix. Note that the main Submissions table contains the submission id in the field id, whereas nested sub-tables contain the submission id in the field submissions_id.

url

The ODK Central base URL without trailing slash.

Default: get_default_url.

Set default url through ru_setup(url="...").

See vignette("Setup", package = "ruODK").

un

The ODK Central username (an email address). Default: get_default_un. Set default un through ru_setup(un="..."). See vignette("Setup", package = "ruODK").

pw

The ODK Central password. Default: get_default_pw. Set default pw through ru_setup(pw="..."). See vignette("Setup", package = "ruODK").

retries

The number of attempts to retrieve a web resource.

This parameter is given to RETRY(times = retries).

Default: 3.

verbose

Whether to display debug messages or not.

Read vignette("setup", package = "ruODK") to learn how ruODK's verbosity can be set globally or per function.

Value

The relative local path to the downloaded attachment or NA.

Details

This is a helper function used by attachment_get. This function is not vectorised, but mapped by attachment_get to a tibble of input parameters.
