What is JSON format to add attached files for JIRA issue


i want to know what is the JSON format needed to add attached files because the following code in VBscript report me an error :


Dim RestApiRequ, JiraUrl
Set RestApiRequ = CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP")
JiraUrl = "http://jiralink/jira/rest/api/2/issue/JIRATICKET/" & "attachments?os_username=" & JiraUserName & "&os_password=" & JiraPassword & ""
RestApiRequ.open "POST", JiraUrl, false
RestApiRequ.setRequestHeader "Content-Type", "application/json"
PostData = "{""file"":""C:\Users\ee.txt""}"
RestApiRequ.send PostData
Msgbox RestApiRequ.responseText


the error said that : the server refuse this request because the request entity is in format not supported by the requested ressource for the requested methode

so some one can help me to solve this issue ?

Hi ozaidris,

Are you able to use curl to add the attachment with curl?  It sounds like you may be on Windows so you may need to download curl.

You may also want to see the last post by M.R. in this Communities post related to VB and attachments.



Hi Branden,

I m not able to use curl, the link include VBA code, so you don't have any ideas using VBscript and JSON format ?
