Using the Crucible API to add files to a review

I'm writing a script to pull changed files from Perforce and add them to a review in Crucible. I've looked at the API docs, but for the addFile call, the docs don't specify what the content (XML) of the request should look like. For instance, in the addChangeset call (which I have used), the docs specify that the XML request uses an <addChangeset> block, with a <changesets> and then <changesetData> nodes for each changeset. I don't see anything giving that level of detail for the addFile call. Can someone provide more detail on the required XML content for an addFile call? Thanks.

p.s., this is the documentation I've been looking at: http://docs.atlassian.com/fisheye-crucible/latest/wadl/crucible.html#d2e2178

The documentation mentions that this call does't expect an XML document with embedded files.
Instead it uses multipart form data encoding to receive the file.

Using cURL it looks like this:

curl --user rene:password -F file="@killerapp.cpp" -X POST http://localhost:8060/rest-service/reviews-v1/CR-123/addFile

Sorry it took me so long to get back to this. Your answer was helpful. What I would like to do is add 2 versions of the same file to a review (like a fromPath and toPath). It seems that, to do this, I would need the 2 files on a local file system, from which I could upload them to Crucible via the HTTP request. I guess I was looking for a way to do that from my source control system (perforce) rather than from my local file system. I know I can use the Crucible UI, but I wanted to automate it.

Using the cURL command I got the following error:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?><error><code>IllegalArgument</code><message>fileToReview cannot be be null</message></error>

I had gotten the same error while trying to test the API using Postman.

How could this be resolved?
