Send attached file using Multipart/form-data

CA API Gateway


We would like to send file to the backend service through the gateway.

How can we do this on gateway? 

We would like to call the PAPI /asset endpoint on gateway. But we don't know how to achieve sending json file (content-type=multipart/form-data request) on gateway.

Postman call like below:

POST /apiportal/api-management/1.0/apis/922798bd-2def-4be0-983c-54394bf81c70/assets HTTP/1.1
Authorization: Bearer xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Content-Length: 196
Content-Type: multipart/form-data; boundary=----WebKitFormBoundary7MA4YWxkTrZu0gW

Content-Disposition: form-data; name="files"; filename="/path/to/file"
Content-Type: <Content-Type header here>



Release : 10.0

Component : API GATEWAY


you have to request the "assemble mime message" tactical assertion to be able to create the correct message format multipart/form-data
