Now i am able to attach a file to JIRA issue attachment section by changing the below code block

var filecontent = new ByteArrayContent(System.IO.File.ReadAllBytes("C:\\Users\\XXXX\\Desktop\\Sample.xlsx"));
            var content = new MultipartContent("form-data", "AAAA");
            content.Headers.Add("X-Atlassian-Token", "nocheck");
            content.Headers.Add("charset", "UTF-8");

            filecontent.Headers.ContentDisposition = new System.Net.Http.Headers.ContentDispositionHeaderValue("form-data")
            {
                Name="\"file\"",
                FileName = "Attachment.xlsx"
            };

            filecontent.Headers.ContentType = new System.Net.Http.Headers.MediaTypeHeaderValue("application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.spreadsheetml.sheet");
            content.Add(filecontent);

Google says this to me - http://stackoverflow.com/questions/13240664/how-to-set-a-boundary-on-a-multipart-form-data-request-while-using-jquery-ajax-f

(it says to set the contentType to false while making the ajax query from javascript. You need to find the quilvalent in the language you are writing the code)

Hi All,

Now the FileUploadException is solved.

I have used the below code to attach a file to "On demand JIRA",the response is 200, OK but Json return object is []

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Net.Http;
using System.Json;
using System.Web.Script.Serialization;
using System.Net;

namespace JiraAttachements
{
    class Class1
    {
        public void AddAttachment()
        {
            System.Net.Http.HttpClient client = new System.Net.Http.HttpClient();
            client.DefaultRequestHeaders.ExpectContinue = false;
            client.Timeout = TimeSpan.FromMinutes(90);
            byte[] crdential = UTF8Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes("wwww:yyyy");
            client.DefaultRequestHeaders.Authorization = new System.Net.Http.Headers.AuthenticationHeaderValue("Basic", Convert.ToBase64String(crdential));
            client.DefaultRequestHeaders.Accept.Add(new System.Net.Http.Headers.MediaTypeWithQualityHeaderValue("application/json"));

            var filecontent = new ByteArrayContent(System.IO.File.ReadAllBytes("C:\\Users\\xxx\\Desktop\\Keys.txt"));

            var content = new MultipartFormDataContent("AA");

            content.Headers.Add("X-Atlassian-Token", "nocheck");
            content.Headers.Add("charset", "UTF-8");

            content.Headers.ContentDisposition = new System.Net.Http.Headers.ContentDispositionHeaderValue("form-data")
            {
                Name="\"file\"",
                FileName = "C:\\Users\\xxx\\Desktop\\Keys.txt"
            };

            content.Add(filecontent);

please find the remaining code block in next comment

Please find my remaining C# code blocks for file upload in On demand jira

try
            {
                client.PostAsync("https://{server name}.atlassian.net/rest/api/2/issue/TEST-1/attachments", content).ContinueWith(requesTask =>
                {
                    try
                    {
                        HttpResponseMessage response = requesTask.Result;
                        if (response.StatusCode == "OK")
                        {
                            Console.WriteLine(" Attached .");
                        }
                        else
                        {
                        }
                    }
                    catch (Exception exception)
                    {
                    }
                });


            }
            catch (Exception exception)
            {
                Console.WriteLine(exception.StackTrace.ToString());
                Console.ReadLine();
            }

            Console.ReadKey();
        }


}




Json Response is 200,Ok but Json returns object is [] - please use this in immediate window

string s=response.Content.ReadAsStringAsync().Result;

Result - "[]"

Please highlight my mistakes in the code blocks.
