Trying to send a attachment in POST request

Below is the Curl .

curl -X POST --header 'Content-Type: multipart/form-data' --header 'Accept: application/json' {"type":"formData"} 'http://domain/users/users/import'





While doing this am getting a 400 Bad Request.


The request body is as below but all are optional parameter.


  "user": "string",

  "Time": "2018-06-25T09:50:43.461Z",

  "Data": "string",

  "FileName": "string",

  "Status": "string",

  "TotalUsers": 0,

  "UnassignUsers": 0,

  "UniqueUsers": 0,

  "UpdatedUsers": 0,

  "UserLogId": 0




After selecting the Media-Type as multipart/form-data ,attaching xml file and hitting post in SoapUI.

    The problem is solved now.

    The file will be provided as parameter in SoapuI and then a path of the file.


    and then attach the file and hit on POST.

    Is there anything more in the response? An error message maybe? Don't you have access to the application's logs? I guess there are many problems that can be signaled by the 400 status response...

      Can't put my finger on it. Again, there can be multiple causes for this. Can't you access the application's logs?
