Issue/Introduction

I'm unable to update shared folders via API as described here:
https://guide.blazemeter.com/hc/en-us/articles/115003324189-How-To-Update-Shared-Folders-via-API-How-To-Update-Shared-Folders-via-API

Everything seems to work fine, but the end result is that a file of 0 bytes gets placed in the shared folder.
 
The curl command seems to find the file and send bytes, but on the other side it ends up at 0. No idea why.


Cause

Need to add an extra parameter, our documentation is off and needs to be corrected.

Environment

Release : SAAS

Component : PACKAGE CA BLAZEMETER

Resolution

Needed to add -H "Content-Type: application/octet-stream" --data-binary "<path to file>" to the URL.
