I have massive problem with saving “attachment” from Gmail inbox. The mail message I’m receiving is sent by bot, API I assume with .xlsx attachment in it. It looks really normal when I open it manually in inbox. Simple message with attachment.
But when I’m trying to get this gmail message attachment through UiPath (using GSuite), this particular Gmail object has 0 attachments. I searched through all it’s properties and headers - nothing can be found there.
When I manually forward this received message to myself again, and then try to get mails in Studio - now the attachment can be perfectly found and saved in Studio.
Now, I have few concerns of how to do it or how to walk around it:
- Download somehow this attachement from gmail message object in Studio - maybe someone of you already faced this issue?
- Try to forward this message to myself in Studio - but I can’t find suitable activity to do this with Gsuite (SMTP cannot be used here, as this is account correlated with company account, policies, etc.)
- Try to schedule automatical forwarding directly in Gmail Account Settings - I tried to follow videos with instructions, but my account can’t set Filtering Rule with forwarding, probably due to company policies.
Can anyone please advise how else can I manage to download this “weird attachment” ?
