I need some help with uploading a document as input document via API as described in the PHP example at this link: ... t-document

No matter what I'm doing, I keep getting the error: 400, Bad Request: This filename does not exist!.
When looking into the PM classes seems like the $_FILES is always empty. I'm new to APIs, I have no idea how debug further.

Please, let me know if anyone managed to use that piece of code to post an input-document (from another machine).

Hi Amosbatto,

I'm using for saving file and passing path as parameter.
"tas_uid": "24322509756bc1b5012c202012716621",
"app_doc_comment": "test",

Response:- "message": "Bad Request: This filename does not exist!"

Can you suggest me ,what's the issue and how to solve? Please.....

I'm uploading file by using REST API while posting everything is fine but request status is 302 Found.
Please find attached Screen shot for API Request.

Are you trying to use a web uploader like this or are you trying to run a script which uploads a file which already exists on the computer? Post your code. I don't know anything about .NET, but maybe I can spot something if I look at your code.
You can upload documents by using MultipartFormDataContent in C#. This was all done in ASP.Net Core, but it should work for some of the older .Net MVC versions as well.
Code: Select all
public async Task<ActionResult<JObject>> UploadFile()
        using (HttpClient client = new HttpClient())
        using (var formData = new MultipartFormDataContent())
            client.DefaultRequestHeaders.Authorization = new AuthenticationHeaderValue("Bearer",  authToken);

            formData.Add(new StringContent(documentUid), "inp_doc_uid");
            formData.Add(new StringContent(taskUid), "tas_uid");
            formData.Add(new StringContent(documentComment), "app_doc_comment");

            string filePath = Path.GetFullPath("/path/to/file.jpg");
            FileStream fileStream = new FileStream(filePath, FileMode.Open);

            formData.Add(new StreamContent(fileStream), "form", "file.jpg");

            HttpResponseMessage response = await client.PostAsync("{caseId}/input-document", formData);

            string responseString = await response.Content.ReadAsStringAsync();

            JObject responseJson = JObject.Parse(responseString);

            if (!response.IsSuccessStatusCode)
                return StatusCode((int)response.StatusCode, responseString ?? response.ToString());

            return Ok(responseJson);
