Re: [Ftpapi] replicating a curl request

I've been working on this off and on. I found the ADDL_HEADER and created the custom headers, I'll remove those for authorization. My biggest issue now is that using http_post_stmf(), it can't find my PDF. I've tried changing CCSID, renaming the file to all uppercase, moving it to my personal IFS directory. It is returning 3025 on the stat command. I've just upgraded to the latest version and will try again using http_stmf instead of the older http_post_stmf

This is a strange curl request... I don't think whomever wrote it was a regular curl user.  For example, he's coding the authrorization string manually instead of using curl's normal userid/password parameters.  And I don't understand why he's coding "no-cache"...  that would only make sense for a web browser, but he's using curl...

But, yeah... you can do this with HTTPAPI.

a) the content-type is a parameter, use that, do not code a custom header.

b) likewise for authorization, use http_setAuth(), not a custom header

c) For the custom headers you do need (file_name, table_name, table_sys_id) you'll need to use an ADDL_HEADER exit procedure.

d) for the "data" parameter, just pass it in the upload data.  If using http_stmf or http_req, you just use the path to your PDF.  If you're using the older set of APIs, use http_post_stmf() to point to your PDF.

All I need to replicate a curl request to upload a PDF to a site from the System I release 7.1. Could someone assist since even though I’ve used HTTPAPI for retrieving XML documents and posting them I haven’t used it for uploading a file, and since I don’t know curl, I’m hoping someone can translate what it is doing and provide some help. I’d fight through it myself, but time is of the essence in providing a System I solution. Thanks.

curl --request POST --url


--header 'authorization: Basic SlN5bm93aWVjVGVzdDpUZXN0MTIzNA=='

--header 'cache-control: no-cache' --header 'content-type: document/pdf'

--header 'file_name: 29_March_2017.pdf' --header 'table_name:

u_total_statements' --header 'table_sys_id:

dab3ae544f3383006e5f6cd18110c790' --data 29_March_2017.pdf \
