6500 General Error when uploading files for a comment via the API


I am trying to create a comment for a task via the API, and upload files in the task comment.

When I use Postman, everything works fine, both the comment and files are added.

However, when I use axios in Node.js to send a POST request, I am getting an error. This is the code that I am using:

  1. const url = `https://projectsapi.zoho.eu/restapi/portal/${zoho.username}/projects/${zohoProject}/tasks/${req.body.id}/comments/?content=${req.body.comment}`;

  2. const formData = new FormData();

  3. formData.append('uploaddoc', fs.createReadStream(path.join(__dirname, '..', 'files', 'test.jpg')), { filename: 'test.jpg' });

  4. response = await axios.post(url, formData, {
  5.      headers: {
  6.           Authorization: 'Bearer ' + accessToken,
  7.           'Content-Type': 'multipart/form-data'
  8.      }
  9. });

The response I receive from the API is:
  1. { code: 6500, message: 'General Error' }
It appears that this line in my code:
  1. 'Content-Type': 'multipart/form-data'
is causing the error. When I remove that line, the comment content is submitted correctly, however no file is uploaded.

Any ideas as to what I may be doing wrong?

    • Announcing the Zoho Projects API

      Today we're excited to announce the API for Zoho Projects where any developer can extend the project management and collaboration capabilities through our APIs and can build their own customized applications for their business needs. We've tried to make the API follow the REST (Representational State Transfer) principles and generate a XML/ JSON object which allows you to access / read / write Zoho Projects data from third-party systems like Google/Yahoo gadgets, web sites, billing & invoicing systems,
    • Have you moved to REST API?

      Dear API Users, The Documentation of our Rest API is available here . All future development will be done to this version. We are deprecating the older API today. Its documentation will no longer be available and we will also be stopping the calls to this API soon. Thanks, Prasanna
