Add Attachment to SharePoint List using PATCH function

At the moment, there’s no method to Patch attachments to a SharePoint list but there’s a workaround available which lets you patch attachments with other data fields that you want to patch. Let’s see how we can achieve this.

  • Insert an edit form of the SharePoint list where you want to patch and select only the Attachments column in the form.


  • Now on any button’s OnSelect write your Patch command in the way that is shown below.


  • As you can see the first portion of our Patch command is straightforward that we are creating a new record in a table but after giving the record we are using that form’s update attribute to fetch attachments from the form that were added by the user. And this way whenever a new record is created, the attachment will also be saved with its respective item.
