I have a client who is using ArcGIS Collector application to collect data about water network assets such as valves and hydrants.

Feature service used in the collector application are hosted in ArcGIS Online for Organisation.

Customer wants to periodically download data collected to their local set-up as File Geo-database using createReplica REST end-point. However, customer does not want to download attachments right away as it amounts to gigs of data to be included in the FGDB. createReplica rest end-point has an option to "Return Attachments Data By URL". However it does not seem to work when downloading as FGDB. All attachments get packed into FGDB as BLOB. Is it by design or a bug?
