Does GeoEvent recognize attachments?

I have an Input set-up in GeoEvent to poll a feature class.  These features have image attachments with them.  I'm trying to get GeoEvent to poll the feature class and copy it over to a new feature class (using either the Add a Feature or Update a Feature) with the attachment.  It copies the data over currently but not the attachment.  Is there a way to get GeoEvent to copy over the attachment to the new feature class too?

Unfortunately attachments are not supported in GeoEvent.  This was confirmed by ESRI.  The way I got around it is by creating a model in ArcGIS Pro that does this and run it at regular intervals.  This allows me to copy a feature class w/ attachments included and also export attachments.

Hello Nicholas,

is it possible to send me your model?

Thanks Karsten

This is all it is.  Basically it updates a layer in a geodatabase and then clears out the features in the ArcGIS Online feature service (using a pre-condition so it copies over before clearing out).  This way transfers over the attachments with the record since it's copying into a geodatabase.  I just run this manually in Pro on a weekly basis or so, but you could export it as a Python Script on run in on a regular interval to copy over to your master feature layer and delete from the original Online feature layer.  Let me know if you have any more questions about it.
