Upload attachment using REST API from C#.NET Edited


We are creating a tool to migrate Versionone  data to JIRA. So for this I am consuming REST APIs mentioned in "". I am struggling to upload an attachment to an issue. All the time I am getting Statuscode as "200" but there is no attachment to the issue in JIRA. Here in below is my code, please suggest me what I am doing wrong here. 




 void SendFileToServer(string IssueKey)         {             FileInfo fi = new FileInfo(@"C:\VersionOneAttachments\some.png");             ServicePointManager.SecurityProtocol = SecurityProtocolType.Tls12;             byte[] fileContents = File.ReadAllBytes(fi.FullName);
//             string urlPath = ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings.Get("JIRAURLForCreateIssue").ToString();             Uri webService = new Uri(string.Format("{0}/{1}/attachments", urlPath, IssueKey));             HttpRequestMessage requestMessage = new HttpRequestMessage(HttpMethod.Post, webService);             requestMessage.Headers.ExpectContinue = false;             MultipartFormDataContent multiPartContent = new MultipartFormDataContent("----MyGreatBoundary");             ByteArrayContent byteArrayContent = new ByteArrayContent(fileContents);             byteArrayContent.Headers.Add("Content-Type""image/png");             byteArrayContent.Headers.Add("X-Atlassian-Token""no-check");             multiPartContent.Add(byteArrayContent, "this is the name of the content", fi.Name);             requestMessage.Content = multiPartContent;             HttpClient httpClient = new HttpClient();             httpClient.DefaultRequestHeaders.Add("Authorization"ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings.Get("JiraAuthorizationKey").ToString());             httpClient.DefaultRequestHeaders.Add("X-Atlassian-Token""no-check");             try             {                 Task<HttpResponseMessage> httpRequest = httpClient.SendAsync(requestMessage, HttpCompletionOption.ResponseContentRead, CancellationToken.None);                 HttpResponseMessage httpResponse = httpRequest.Result;                 HttpStatusCode statusCode = httpResponse.StatusCode;                 HttpContent responseContent = httpResponse.Content;                 if (responseContent != null)                 {                     Task<String> stringContentsTask = responseContent.ReadAsStringAsync();                     String stringContents = stringContentsTask.Result;                 }             }             catch (Exception ex)             {                 Console.WriteLine(ex.Message);             }         }


Any idea will be appreciated.

Hi @Basanta Padhi

I got solution!

just change

multiPartContent.Add(byteArrayContent, "this is the name of the content", fi.Name);


multiPartContent.Add(byteArrayContent, "file", fi.Name);

 It's worked.
