File content vs File from URL
There are two general ways Workato handles uploading attachments: uploading file content and uploading file from URL.
1. Uploading file content
This type of action allows you to upload plain text file content as a file.
2. Uploading file from URL
This action allows you to upload a file of any type from its URL.
Downloading file content
When you download file content in Workato, you are not actually downloading the file to your computer. Downloading file content is useful with text-based files, allowing you to use the text content of a downloaded file in further steps of your recipe.
