One particular note is located here:
Could not perform the operation, policy limit exceeded
When using the createAttachment() web service method to attach a document to an existing request or incident, you receive this error, even when the web services policy setting for attachments is set to -1(unlimited), which is the out-of-the-box default setting. You may receive this error when calling the web service method when there are no attached files in the received SOAP message. You must attach at least one file to the SOAP message before calling the createAttachment() web service method.
Set your SOAP implementation to support Direct Internet Message Encapsulation (DIME), and attach the file to be uploaded manually using DIME support before calling the createAttachment() method.
You can refer to the examples on how to support DIME from the $NX_ROOT\samples\sdk\websvc\java\test3_attachments directory.
