Assets 6.4 HTTP API - Upload asset

Avatar

Level 1

Hi all,

 

In the AEM Assets documentation it is written that a new asset can be created with the following POST request:

POST /api/assets/myFolder/* -F"name=myAsset.png" -F"file=@myPicture.png"

 

Could you please provide more information on what is expected as a value for file property? I have tried uploading it with a path to the image, but every time I try to create an asset I end up creating a new folder.

 

What is the correct way to upload an asset via HTTP API?

 

All the best!

Hi There,

 

How are you firing your POST? Using curl? Postman?

 

It is necessary to have a folder pre-existing where you want to upload an image.

 

For example I use following command from curl console and it works:

curl http://localhost:4502/api/assets/my-image123.jpeg -H"Content-Type: image/jpeg" --upload-file "preview_Monitor_template.psd" -v --user admin

 

Try --upload-file to pass binary file.

 

Thanks!
