JUnit Zephyr Scale REST API Import Unsupported Media Type

I am currently trying to upload a JUnit xml document via the

endpoint and get back a 415 for Unsupported Media Type.

I am making the post request with the requests module using Python 3.8. I have tried passing the binary file contents in with the files argument or as part of the body, but both are returning the same error. I have tried both zip and xml files and have the content type set to application/json.

The documentation shows what the response looks like, but an example of the request would be greatly appreciated.

I was able to resolve the issue by fixing the header key value from the documentation.

I am currently able to upload the xml file by using the files parameter for the post function and having the body just contain the testCycle value, but the testCycle seems to be ignored.

Was able to resolve the issue by placing the file and testCycle keys in the files parameter and specifying the Content-Type for the testCycle portion.


I am also having this same issue, but I'm not sure that I understand your resolution. 

The json body should be passed on the data= or the json= parm of the request? I've tried both. What did you specify for the body values: (id, utl, key)?

Body = json.dumps ( {
   "testCycle": {
         "id": 1,
         "url": "string",
         "key": "string"
} )

They do not make any sense as this request creates a new execution and test cases 

thanks for posting!

Dear Neelin, I searched a lot and couldn't fix this problem, and still receive error 415!!

can you please kindly send me your request script? I would be grateful if you could help me fix this issue.

here is my email:

I was also not able to resolve. I ended up calling curl (from python) to get around the problem.  Please also let me know if you are able to figure it out "the right way".
