UPLOAD A ZIP FILE USING SOAPUI

Could I receive an example of a correct request header to upload a ZIP file using a POST?

Many many thanks

Hey @anthos

 

 

the http headers associated with a particular request are specific to that request, so it;s not like people can just tell you what headers you need.   HOWEVER - for certain scenarios there are 'rules' to follow.  (attachments or multi part or form data, or % encoded payloads require certain Content-Type headers).

 

It appears you want to attach a .zip file to a REST request.  Looking at the attachment you included, it appears that you've proxied some requests via fiddler - one of the requests (48_request) was via Postman (due to the inclusion of the auto generated Postman-Token header) and the other (529_request) appears to be the same request, but NOT via Postman - so I'm guessing 529_request was via SoapUI...??

 

If you notice in your Postman request you have a Content-Type header with value 'multipart/form-data;'  - I would suggest you need to set the equivalent in your SoapUI request.

 

I'm guessing about the detail based on your brief description and no info on the fiddler attachment.

 

The more info you provide, the more likely forum members will be able to assist,

 

Cheers,

if this helped answer the post, could you please mark it as 'solved'? Also if you consider whether the title of your post is relevant? Perhaps if the post is solved, it might make sense to update the Subject header field of the post to something more descriptive? This will help people when searching for problems. Ta

hi dear

the first attached request header works well (POSTMAN)

POST https://www.sinfi.it/sinfi-validator1/rest/upload?iPlanetDirectoryPro=AQIC5wM2LY4SfcyoFeCBJX5PAhXGBQ... HTTP/1.1
X-OpenAM-Username: DMNRFI20T01H501M

----------------------------610712940258152505076183
Content-Disposition: form-data; name="file-value"; filename="TEST_INFR_RT.zip"

==============================================================

this following request sended via SOAPUI doesn't work.

POST https://www.sinfi.it/sinfi-validator1/rest/upload?iPlanetDirectoryPro=AQIC5wM2LY4SfcyPgdttoQh3vhKa9s... HTTP/1.1

I don't know how to set SOAPUI parameters to obtain identical Header Request.

Thanks a lot if you can help me 😐

Hi @anthos ,

what kind of response do you get?

If you:

  • make an HTTP POST request,
  • select multipart/mixed media type and
  • add the zip file as an attachment

SoapUI will then handle all neccessary HTTP headers, unless you have some specific needs.

 

The response message might be a clue what is missing. When comparing your requests it seems that the session identification might be missing:

Cookie: amlbcookie=07; SERVERID=2

 

In such case you can add the HTTP headers (Add a custom HTTP header, just beside the Attachments tab).

 

Best regards,

Karel
