Hi Ramzi Arfaoui, 
thanks for your quick reply!
My problem was that i had to create a download-link for a file (ezbinaryfile) - i rendered the whole object, and wasn't able to access the internal Fields to get the current attribute Id  where the downloadable file was located 

My first thought was i have to build a new download link template, but i got an hint to do it better. I will make an overwrite for content_fields.html.twig to change it.
