    Upload file to ThingWorx cloud from REST URL

    Hi Team,

    Basically I have created a file upload widget (mashup) which uploads the file to my thingWorx cloud instance manually(click on browse->upload) and it was a success.

    Now I wanted to automate the  activity from REST Client like postman.

    If my URL is http://gexxxx.cloud.thingworx.com/Thingworx/FileRepositories/getFileUploadThing/- I tried to post the file ( with headers as appKey - "my application key")

    In body selected binary - and browsed the file to upload and hit send in postman

    I recieved the error response.

     

    <html>

        <head>

            <title>Apache Tomcat/7.0.52 - Error report</title>

            <style>

                <!--H1 {font-family:Tahoma,Arial,sans-serif;color:white;background-color:#525D76;font-size:22px;} H2 {font-family:Tahoma,Arial,sans-serif;color:white;background-color:#525D76;font-size:16px;} H3 {font-family:Tahoma,Arial,sans-serif;color:white;background-color:#525D76;font-size:14px;} BODY {font-family:Tahoma,Arial,sans-serif;color:black;background-color:white;} B {font-family:Tahoma,Arial,sans-serif;color:white;background-color:#525D76;} P {font-family:Tahoma,Arial,sans-serif;background:white;color:black;font-size:12px;}A {color : black;}A.name {color : black;}HR {color : #525D76;}-->

            </style>

        </head>

        <body>

            <h1>HTTP Status 500 - Content type may not be null</h1>

            <HR size="1" noshade="noshade">

            <p>

                <b>type</b> Status report

            </p>

            <p>

                <b>message</b>

                <u>Content type may not be null</u>

            </p>

            <p>

                <b>description</b>

                <u>The server encountered an internal error that prevented it from fulfilling this request.</u>

            <HR size="1" noshade="noshade">

        </body>

    </html>

     

    However I were able to successfully download the file from REST with GET method and later created a java application to download the file.

     

    I am stuck with steps to upload file to cloud using rest.

     

    Thanks,
