Binary file download activity only sometimes works
I uploaded a binary file and now I am trying to add a button to my screen to download the file upon click. I configured the action set to use the DownloadBinaryFile activity on click, and I entered the correct parameters. However, on click, nothing is downloaded. I traced the click event to see if there was an error, and there were none. To check if something was wrong, I used the same activity with the same parameters in the post-processing part of a flow action, and the file was downloaded correctly. I also traced this event and the trace was the exact same as the on-click activity. Any ideas on why one use case works while another doesn't? Tracer screenshot is attached. Using 7.2.1.
So that worked, but now that I have many links in one section the links will not work one after another (if I click on one link, the file will download, but if I click another link nothing is downloaded). Each link has the refresh section and call activity configuration that you suggested, so how can I fix this?
I tried this scenario in 7.1.9 and it is working. I also remeber i tried this in 7.1.7 but that was not working. so i had used the "Open URL In Window" action and provided the activity. But in this approach, the user has to manually close the window.
