Uploading a file to Confluence using powershell

Hello, 

I am trying to add a document to confluence page. I am using this code :

E:\APP\"curl-7.53.1"\src\curl.exe  -v -S -u user:password -X POST -H "X-Atlassian-Token: no-check" -F "file=@C:\Users\srvc_mdw_dev\Desktop\conf.txt" -F "comment=this is my file" "http://confluence.example.net/rest/api/content/36375143/child/attachment"

 But i get the following error :

PS E:\PowerShell\script> ./confNote: Unnecessary use of -X or --request, POST is already inferred.
* timeout on name lookup is not supported*   Trying IPaddress...
* TCP_NODELAY set

 I think the Error is in the URI but i'm not sure. Can someone help me please, I've been stuck in this one for a long time. Thank you in advance

Dear @Souhail OUABI,

it's a pity, that no one managed to answer this one within nearly one year.

First of all, I checked the command on Linux with curl 7.47.0 (x86_64-pc-linux-gnu):

curl -v -S -u admin:********** -X POST -H "X-Atlassian-Token: no-check" -F "file=@file.tar.gz" -F "comment=this is my file" http://localhost:8090/rest/api/content/1234567/child/attachment

The command worked pretty fine. The command has a different format on Linux than yours, but is equal.

The output header/debug information:

Note: Unnecessary use of -X or --request, POST is already inferred.

Next I have to look for a powershell and repeat it.

Hang on, meanwhile, will not take another year, for sure!

So long

Same command was pretty fine on a power shell (win10) with curl 7.58.0 win64 generic.

So in your case it could be a buggy curl version.

Or following the HTTP error code 302, this could mean that the page was redirected. This can be caused by a bad configured proxy.

So long
