Reviewing the few mentions of channels here and in Bitbucket, all the old channel statements and functions have been brought across from P6, along with a number of modules, but currently it appears that new channel modules can’t be registered or used, and there doesn’t seem to be any channel module registration functionality built into the View Organiser as there is for custom statements.
There are three email modules in the channels that reside in PX, none supporting enclosures. Jim has suggested that he probably wouldn’t enable enclosure support himself, Dave has commented that it could be done with AppleScript in a PX procedure, and James Cook gave details of how he was able to achieve this using Python inside a PX procedure.
Even though new channel modules don’t seem to be supported, it seems to be possible to modify the code in existing modules. Would any changes made to procedures in existing modules be overwritten with new PX releases?
Or would it be better to ignore channels as Dave and James suggest?
Sending email enclosures from Panorama is a crucial feature for my business, and seems to be so for other Panorama users. It would be great to have a solid, easy to use implementation of this feature.
