Unable to include XML file as request in SOAP UI unlike POSTMAN

In Postman i can have body as Form-data

and request can have File as an Input and nothing else. Hence XML file is the input

But In soapui free I just cannot send just the file as the request

The response says cannot detect file

    Can you describe how the HTTP message should look?


    I was able to make a REST POST request with an attached XML file that looks like this:


    POST http://localhost:8080/accountcreation?username=john&password=w0j39av0d8s HTTP/1.1
    Accept-Encoding: gzip,deflate
    Content-Type: multipart/mixed; boundary="----=_Part_0_2128274485.1564292773222"
    MIME-Version: 1.0
    Content-Length: 4437
    Host: localhost:8080
    Connection: Keep-Alive
    User-Agent: Apache-HttpClient/4.1.1 (java 1.5)
    Content-Type: text/xml; charset=Cp1252; name=soapui-log4j.xml
    Content-Transfer-Encoding: binary
    Content-Disposition: form-data; name="soapui-log4j.xml"; filename="soapui-log4j.xml"
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE log4j:configuration SYSTEM "log4j.dtd">
    (... the rest of the XML file... )

    Is that the sort of thing you meant?
