Use includeFile to return the base64-encoded contents of the file. Default is true.

Note: If one or more files are included in the response, the cumulative total of all files that are returned is limited to 50 MB in size. If the total size of the included files is greater than 50 MB in size, you will only receive the meta data about the file attachments in the response.
