I am having an issue specifically trying to upload an attachment blob to Egnyte using the REST API. Code is below. Any input is appreciated, I am guessing my POST is missing something but I can't see it.

Attachment att = [SELECT Body FROM Attachment WHERE Id = '00P55000001p7tE'];

String destinationPath = 'pubapi/v1/fs-content/Shared/Salesforce.com/Accounts/Amy%20Test/Opportunities/Amy%20Test%20no%20MgmtCo/Test/test';

Http h = new Http();
HttpRequest req = new HttpRequest();
req.setHeader('Authorization', 'Bearer ' + authResponse.access_token);

req.setEndpoint('callout:EgnyteDerrickCredential/' + destinationPath);
HttpResponse res = h.send(req);


With response:

18:55:56:582 USER_DEBUG [53]|DEBUG|{"message":"content length do not match with DB object size for workgroupid:65a17409-23cc-4f04-baf6-00f5cbecbb6d and objectId: 157.9c1ce840-b63c-4609-9204-10548c617015 actual size: 0, expected size: 55456"}

There seems to be an issue with the Salesforce library that you are utilizing setting an incorrect value for the content-length header. Thus, the request is unable to upload the file. Our development team is looking into the issue now and will have an update soon.

  • Attachment attach = [Select Id, Name, Body, ContentType from attachment where ID = '00P24000000tVl8']; HttpRequest req = new HttpRequest(); req.setEndpoint('mydomain.egnyte.com/pubapi/v1/fs-content/Shared/Documents/…); req.setHeader('Authorization','Bearer YOUR_TOKEN'); req.setHeader('Content-Type',attach.ContentType); req.setMethod('POST'); req.setBodyAsBlob(attach.body); Http http=new Http(); HttpResponse res=http.send(req); System.debug('response -- >'+res.getBody()); Commented Jun 28, 2016 at 15:47

I needed to specify the content-type with the header before sending. That fixed the issue.

req.setHeader('Content-Type', 'application/octet-stream');
