Http request attachment: Corrupt File Uploaded

Hello,

I am using HTTP Request activity to upload an image using API call to an application.

using endpoint as http://url/blah_blah_blah&file_name=1.jpg

Headers:

Content-Type–image/jpeg

Passing the file path in the Attachment section of properties.

The file is getting uploaded but is corrupt. While this is getting uploaded from the Postman all fine.

Any suggestions will be helpful.

Thanks,
Vaibhav

Hello, Vaibhav!

Are you using the same Content-Type in Postman as well? Usually files are uploaded with the multipart/form-data Content-Type, they are not uploaded directly as image/jpeg. That’s how the HTTP Request works as well.
Is the receiving server under your control? If so, does it read the body of the request directly, without any decoding? Isn’t it expecting any sort of encoding for that request body?
Can you please export the functioning Postman request and paste it here? (you can remove the destination URL, of course, for privacy reasons. you will need to add that request to a collection and export the collection)
