The reason you can't find a function to get the attachments names is because you don't need one. Attachments is a standard variable in PS. To use it you would do something like this:


string parent = key.parent;

string [] attachments = %parent%.attachments;

for(string a in attachments) {

    string attachmentPath = getAttachmentPath(key, a);



To get a list of the standard variables see


Let me know if you need further assistance.
