in reply to Re: POST file through REST::Client
in thread POST file through REST::Client [SOLVED]

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.
