    Hello NetWallah,

    Apologies for the late reply but I got busy with something else and I did not get the time to test it until now.

    After your proposed modification I have updated the method to:

    sub postSnippetsFile { my ( $self, %options ) = @_; my $headers = { "Content-type" => 'multipart/form-data; boundary=- +---MyRestAPIClientDataDelimiter', # "Content" => [ 'file' => [$options{file}]], "Authorization" => 'Basic '. encode_base64($options{username}.':'. $options{password}), }; $self->{_client}->POST( $options{url}, encode_json({file => $options{file}}), $headers ); return $self->{_client}->responseContent(); }

    Now I am getting the following error (from server):

    $VAR1 = 'AttributeError at /upload/ \'NoneType\' object has no attribute \'name\' . . .

    Hmmm this I need to debug it, but from a quick point of view it looks like the file is not attached through the request. But this is a good point forward. I appreciate your effort to help me.

    Hi,

    thats a job for "LWP" (HTTP::Request::Common)

      Hello Anonymous Monk,

      Maybe I should change to another module, it gets very complicated for no reason.

        My message meant to not bother trying that, as it has zero chance of changing anything. If your car has a flat tire, putting a sticker on the rear bumper won't fix it.

        it gets very complicated for no reason.

        If curl is working for you, why learn something new?
