Uploading attachments via REST API using axios Edited

I'm having a lot of trouble uploading an attachment to a created issue using the REST API. Currently I'm getting a 415 - "unsupported media type" error. 

I would really appriciate some help with this. Thanks! 

 

let actionData=new FormData();
actionData.append('file', files[0]);
actionData.append('comment', "foobar");
actionData.append('minorEdit', "true");
axios({
      method: 'POST',
      url: jiraApiUrl+'/issue/'+issueID+'/attachments',
      headers: {
             'X-Atlassian-Token': 'nocheck',
      },
data: actionData,
}).then(response => {
              //if (!cb) return { error: 'No callback' };
             console.log('response-2', response);
             return ;//cb(response);
})
.catch((err) => console.log('errorTest - files', err));

I'm not sure about using axios, but from looking at other instances with this error such as

How to change the mediatype of an attachment via REST API

REST API error 415 unsupported media type

It seems like this might be a problem with a lack of a content type paramenter.   I think you might need to clarify the request by adding a

'Content-Type: application/json'

somehow to this REST.   But I also think you will need to modify the

'X-Atlassian-Token': 'nocheck'

to be

'X-Atlassian-Token: nocheck'

 

Abdul, did you ever get this figured out? I'm having the same problem. So far I have gotten 404, 415 and 500 errors. I can upload via Postman but when I try to use an Axios call it stops working.
