  • Content-Disposition: form-data; name="object" should be instead:
    Content-Disposition: form-data; name="metadata"

    Content-Disposition: form-data; name="content" should be instead:
    Content-Disposition: form-data; name="binary"

  • hi Hicham

    I modified that but still the same error. Can you please JSON payload sample if you have for uploading Content and Metadata,

  • Did anyone able to fix this? Am getting the same error while uploading a sample document through postman.

  • I am also getting same error. If it has fixed then please provide details

  • are you using the Angular Code to connect to REST services?

  • In Angular 5, I used httpClient rather than http which resolved this issue.
