How to upload images to portfolio using a landing page, I tried the following but it is only taking in from an URL but not from the local machine. Could anyone guide me on how to achieve this?

Processing page:

SET @Image = RequestParameter("fileToUpload")

SET @PortfolioObject = CreateObject("Portfolio")
 SetObjectProperty(@PortfolioObject, "DisplayName", GUID())
 SetObjectProperty(@PortfolioObject, "CustomerKey", GUID())
 SetObjectProperty(@PortfolioObject, "FileName", "example.png")

SET @ClientID = CreateObject("ClientID")
 SetObjectProperty(@ClientID, "ID", "xxxxxxx")
 SetObjectProperty(@PortfolioObject, "Client", @ClientID )

SET @ResourceSpecification = CreateObject("ResourceSpecification")
 SetObjectProperty(@ResourceSpecification, "URN", @Image)
 SetObjectProperty(@PortfolioObject, "Source", @ResourceSpecification)

SET @StatusCode = InvokeCreate(@PortfolioObject, @StatusMsg, @ErrorCode)


HTML page:

<!DOCTYPE html>

<form action="" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">
    Select image to upload:
    <input type="text" name="fileToUpload" id="fileToUpload" size="50"> <br/><br/>
    <input type="submit" value="Upload Image" name="submit">

You will need to Base64 encrypt your file that is uploaded via the form you have. Check this Stack Exchange question for some client-side JS options to handle this.

Try the solution using the FileReader class:

function getBase64(file) {    var reader = new FileReader();   
 reader.readAsDataURL(file);    reader.onload = function () {
      console.log(reader.result);    };    reader.onerror = function (error) {
      console.log('Error: ', error);    }; }     
 var file = document.querySelector('#files >
 input[type="file"]').files[0]; getBase64(file); // prints the base64

Notice that .files[0] is a File type, which is a sublcass of Blob. Thus it can be used with FileReader. See the complete working example.

After it is Base64 encoded, you will need to create a REST API Content Builder call Create Asset - (POST /asset/v1/content/assets)

This would need to be added into the JSON Body as File:

File   |   string   |   Base64-encoded string of a file associated with an asset

Simple Sample of the JSON body:

  "CustomerKey" : "ExternalKeyofFile",
  "AssetType" : {
    "name": "FileType",
    "id" : ID_Number_for_FileType
  "Name" : "Test_Img",
  "File" : "YOUR_BASE64_FILE"
