Record Creation and Update Rules (ARCs) & Embedded Inline Images

Posted on by 2
Is there a system setting or other way to manage incoming email attachments with the Record Creation and Update Rule (ARC) process?

We have a situation in our Production environment with all Record Creation and Update Rules. When an incoming email is received and a Record Creation and Update Rule is run, the system is stripping off all email attachments - both inline embedded screenshots and true attachments - and creating Notes for each file. When the Case is created from the ARC, the source email and all Notes are then linked to the Case.  When you open the source email, inline images are now replaced with broken links.

Example of behavior:
  1. Customer sends an email to a Queue monitored by a Record Creation and Update Rule (ARC):
  1.  ARC Rule takes over and
    • Creates Case from incoming Email
    • Autoreplies to Customer
    • Strips both inline attachments from incoming email and creates a Note for each
    • Attaches all to the Case in the Timeline
When you open the original incoming email, the embedded inline images are missing:

What we would rather happen is to leave all embedded screenshots alone and intact in the source email and only strip off and create Notes for true attachments on the email.
Is this possible?

    The issue looks like to be with the email RTE (Rich Text Editor) your "email" entity is using. You can try this:
    1. Create a JS web resource in your environment using the code snippet below:
      "defaultSupportedProps": {
        "advancedContent": true,
        "contextmenuadditionslist": [{"name": "nativeContextMenuHint", "label": "To check spelling, open<br>native menu (Ctrl+right-click)."}],
        "dialog_backgroundCoverColor": "black",
        "disableNativeSpellChecker": false,
        "enterMode": 3,
        "extraPlugins": "computedfont,contextmenuadditions,emailrestoreinlineimages,superimage,copyformatting,tableselection,tabletools,tableresize,autolink,quicktable,blockquote,collapser,stickystyles,pastefromword",
        "height": "600px",
        "toolbarLocation": "top",
        "fillEmptyBlocks": true,

    2. Open your email entity and then main form.
    3. Change the static value of the RTE to the web resource you just created. 

    4. Save and Publish the changes. 
    Additionally, you can play with the JS script to have default font - size, style etc and also do other customisation:
