Team, I am trying to provide File and some para. as a input for API. Expecting output based on validation.

Even after providing both inputs correctly, I am getting File as null with length 0. Below are the details of my env:

  • Windows 11
  • API Automation
  • POST method

How to provide File and some para. to POST API?

  • Could you be more specific? Perhaps show us the request/response. – puzzle Dec 9 '19 at 8:23
  • Actually found many solutions for sending file to POST but with file I want to send some para. too. I have created File obj and I am able to see file fetch successfully as length is > 0 but its become null when it calls server functions – NarendraC Dec 9 '19 at 8:29

Some thing like this

   public void POST_GetClientList()
            string url = "https://XXXXX.XXX.XXX/GetClientList";
            string OutPutdata = null;
            byte status = 0;
            string ResponsCode = null;

            var client = new HttpClient();
            var pairs = new List<KeyValuePair<string, string>>
                    new KeyValuePair<string, string>("username", "cja@xxx.com")

                var content = new FormUrlEncodedContent(pairs);
                var response = client.PostAsync(url, content).Result;
                ResponsCode = response.ToString().Substring(12, 3);

            catch (Exception)



  • yes tried.. But what about file and some para.? Where/How should I give? – NarendraC Dec 9 '19 at 10:52
  • new KeyValuePair<string, string>("username", "cja@xxx.com") these are the parameters, You have to give it like KeyValuePair – ChathuD Dec 9 '19 at 13:57
  • May be I understood the question in wrong way. – ChathuD Dec 9 '19 at 13:58
  • No - What you are saying is correct I have implemented in somewhat same way but just can't proceed as I have to send File and two more parameter simultaneously. If I did so - File obj is getting null :( Finding the solutions. Hope if you have solution for this – NarendraC Dec 11 '19 at 4:45
