Attach File To Issue API Response Returning Empty Array

Hi,

I'm creating a custom form in which a user can create an issue and attach a file to this issue all in the same form. The first API call will create an issue and then using the API response, I grab the newly created Issue Id to attach their selected file using a second call to the Attach to Issue API.

I seem to be successfully calling to the issue, however, the file does not attach and I receive an empty array ( [] ) as a response.

My code is as follows:


let fileForm = document.getElementById("fileToUpload");
let file = fileForm.files[0];
let formData = new FormData();
formData.append("file", file);
let attachment = formData;

AP.request(attachmentApiUrl, {
type: 'POST',
headers: {
'Authorization': 'Basic myUsername:myPassword',
'X-Atlassian-Token': 'no-check'
},
contentType: 'multipart/form-data',
data: attachment,
success: (resp) => {
console.log(resp) // returns "[]";
},
error: (resp) => {
console.log(resp);
}
});

To be clear, I checked that the content of "file" and "attachment"
is correct and I am getting the necessary values as needed.

Am I missing something here? I'm not using an backend process for reading the file, just a file input (#fileToUpload) and putting it into a formData object which I then send to the API.
