I have an DataOject icluding an image file.
Once I ve uploaded the image I want to use it in multiple DataObject of the same Class.

But I alway get 'Forbidden' attaching the file to another dataobject.

I tried to set up a relation but it does not help:

class Bild extends DataObject{
   static $db=array(
   public static $has_one = array(
   'Attachment' => 'CustomImage'
   public static $belongs_many_many = array (
   static $summary_fields = array(
'Attachment.StripThumbnail' => '',
'Beschreibung' => 'Beschreibung'
   public function getCMSFields_forPopup() {

// Profile picture field
$bild = new UploadField('Attachment');
$bild->allowedExtensions = array('jpg', 'png', 'gif');

// Name, Description and Website fields
return new FieldList(
new TextField('Beschreibung', 'Beschreibung'),

class CustomImage extends Image{
   public static $has_many=array(

Version is 3.0.2
What s wrong?

Thanks in advance
